Logos R.I.P. has been compiled and designed by the Stone Twins and it commemorates an international selection of graphic icons from the 20th Century. Each one has its own individual story to tell and each story is encapsulated in a series of in memorium notices featured at the back of the book which take the form of farewell tributes and include a brief history and significant facts. Some of these icons have achieved the status of design classic, others have been relegated to the scrap heap only two years after implementation and at huge expense. In the true style of the swan song Logo R.I.P. has been designed in the style of a biblical hymnbook. The introduction is by Gert Dunbar.
