Above are highlights from a mid-seventies edition of The World of Logotypes by Al Cooper. Eric Carl has posted a large portion of his own copy of this out-of-print book on flickr. You may have already seen some of the pages featured elsewhere but I wanted to extract in single form some of my favorite designs and feature them here on AQ-V in a multi-part series. This is my fifth and final installment. I have chosen all of the marks based on their strong graphic quality. Check out Part 1, Part 2Part 3 and Part 4.

I began from the back of the book moving forward—above are just a few selections from the A-F sections representing a very small portion of this extensive book.
