Cannibals is a 92-page booklet by Ian Lynam comprised of a handful of new essays about design, education, hope, dread, delight, misery, and of course, sex. Lovingly printed in three offset colors black and white (reprint), Cannibals is part-innately relatable pop narrative, part-irreverent mythology, and part-searing critical analysis of design culture today.

Cannibals is typeset in a brand new family of digital typefaces from Wordshape called Kirimomi Display.

TOPICS WITHIN:

– Group projects, process, and writing.
– Methods versus methodologies.
– Mentorship, homework, and tantric computing.
– Colleagues and death.
