The logos above are some highlights from the mid-seventies edition of The World of Logotypes by Al Cooper. Choosing marks based on their strong graphic quality Amy Henderson isolated the logos individually and into a three part series on here site Aqua Velvet. I’ve seen the book in person and I have to say that seeing the logos isolated like this really changes the way they I perceive them. Their true aesthetics are reflected so well with the surrounding white space and no distracting interruptions of that space. Check out Part I, Part 2, and Part 3 of the Aqua Velvet series. You can also check out all of the logos on Eric Carls Flickr who graciously took the time to upload each page of the extensive book.
