Iconic graphic designer Paul Rand is a legend in the industry. At just 33 years old in 1947, he was the chief art director at ad agency William H. Weintraub and Co.—he also published the lauded Thoughts on Design that year.

For the first time since the 1970s, Chronicle Books would be republishing the illustrated volume this month—this latest edition would feature a foreword by renowned graphic designer and Pentagram partner Michael Bierut.

To mark the reprint of this very important design book, Fast Co. Design has asked Bierut to put together a selection of passages from Thoughts on Design that are still deeply relevant for designers today.
