Cipe Pineles: A Life of Design
Cipe Pineles played a pioneering role in the development of graphic design during the era in which the field was just beginning to define itself. Here is the first full account of the life of this extraordinary woman, who not only gained recognition for her own work but shared the stage with two husbands prominent in design as well. The record reveals a woman who played many roles - immigrant, plucky career girl, wartime wife, struggling professional, editorial team member, working mother, widow, design partner, teacher, lover, friend, and colleague. With an unflinching eye for detail, Martha Scotford expertly weaves the story of Cipe Pineles within the larger context of the political, cultural, and economic era in which she worked. She also allows readers a glimpse into the lives of the individuals who populated the design community of that time.
