Commonly considered the greatest graphic designer of all time, Saul Bass is responsible for some of the most timeless logos and most memorable film title sequences of the twentieth century. In 1962, Bass collaborated with Leonore Klein on his only children’s book, which spent decades as a prized out-of-print collector’s item. Half a century later, Rizzoli reprinted Henri's Walk to Paris an absolute gem at once boldly minimalist and incredibly poetic, telling the sweet, aspirational, colorful story of a little boy who lives in rural France and dreams of going to gigantic Paris. Some big authors wrote only one book. Saul Bass just belongs to them.
