Magnetic Storm, Roger & Martyn Dean
Dragon’s World, Surrey, 1984
154 pp, numerous color illustrations, photos, and line drawings
The Dean brothers, Roger & Martyn, rose to the fore of contemporary British design in the 1970s. With complementary work approaches and stylistic hands, the Deans deploy bold, unexpected color swatches and modern materials to visualize a fantastical, multi-dimensional world that previously existed in our imagination or confined the a book’s text. Dragons, spacecraft, inner space and other worldliness all merge on their changing palette.
