SHOW and TELL

It’s all about fit. We tested this theory while designing The Volkswagen Bug Book. The 148-page coffee table book began as hundreds of loose photos collected over the years by author Dan Ouellette and sent to our team in a small box. Linda grew up in a Ford family (her father Jerry owned a dealership in Elko, Nevada), but her love of publication design and her admiration for the Bug’s ultra-cool design, made this the perfect project for us car-crazy designers.
