Thessaloniki Graphic Design, 1980-2009, a compilation, might be a book that originated from Thessaloniki, it is however addressed to the whole world as it is about cultural heritage that belongs to everyone. Its basic virtue is honesty. It is not a patchwork of supposed to be awarded works, nor is it a DIY album for young (or old and exhausted) designers, nor a self-deceiving vehicle of this or that ‘design star’ like much of the material to be found on the shelves of hypermarkets nowadays dressed in a bookshop costume.
