More of Frank Chimero

Designer and illustrator Frank Chimero came up the other day in my Old School post. And I didn’t want to forget to mention another recent project of his I came across: Silhouettes.

Silhouettes is a book he created as an experiment to compare his silhouette to those of various famous people, in the end realizing, “Oh geez, all these guys are geniuses. I’m just an idiot.” What resulted is a really fun book that’s both witty and beautifully designed.


Before leaving his site, also make sure to take a look at his ongoing States series—another fun project—and all of the wonderful things he has available in his shop.
