Barbara Stauffacher Solomon: Ditto


Having spent the better part of seventy years examining the shape of letters, Barbara Stauffacher Solomon uses her new book Ditto to playfully experiment with how far those forms can be pushed before they start to impose their will on the meaning of words.

Barbara Stauffacher Solomon has worked as an artist, designer, and landscape architect across eight decades. Perhaps best known for her invention of Supergraphics, she has also shown her work widely and is represented in the permanent collections of MoMA, LACMA, The Walker Art Center, and many more. And she taught down the street at Harvard. (We once found a catalogue she designed in laundromat in Cambridge.)
