About this author

Stefan Sagmeister published Things I Have Learned in My Life so Far, a book born from a running list he keeps in his diary. With the support of his clients, Sagmeister began transforming these personal maxims into typographic artworks, which appeared on billboards, in magazines, and in public spaces all over the world. The result is an intriguing blend of personal revelation, visual audacity, and examination of the pursuit of happiness. This revised and updated edition includes all of the aphorisms from the first book along with an additional 48 pages of new ones.
