On Air – The Visual Language Of MTV
One of the great rewards of writing PSFK is the smart books we get sent. Last month we received Phaidon Design Classics, this month we got ‘On Air – The Visual Messages And Global Language Of MTV’.
On Air is an awesome collection of the indents and promos that run between shows – sometimes promoting a feature on MTV, sometimes just running for the sake of it. The book comes with a DVD with a huge catalog of “left-field” short film art. One of the truly fascinating aspects of the book is the fact that it is truly international – taking the reader from country to country and continent to continent.
