We’re big fans of the legendary Saul Bass, so when we saw that Ian Albinson at Art of the Title put together a video highlighting some of Bass’ most celebrated film titles, we were floored. The video marks the release of the much anticipated book Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design, which was designed by his daughter Jennifer Bass and written by distinguished design historian Pat Kirkham who knew Saul personally.
