33 1/3 in the Design Observer

We are extremely flattered that Rick Poyner at the Design Observer has some very kind words to say about the design of the series. I’ve included the first paragraph here, but it’s worth reading the whole piece if this is your cup of tea.

In the field of popular culture, there are two superb, long-running series of critical monographs. These projects, intellectually ambitious yet accessible and popular, should be inspirational case studies for any publisher, writer or writing student that aspires to produce equally engaging writing about design for a broad audience. One series is the BFI Film Classics, which devotes an entire volume to each film — I might return to these books another time. The other venture is Continuum’s 33 1/3 series. Here, too, each volume concentrates on a single work, in this case an album of enduring impact and artistic value.
