Vaughan Oliver is one of the most powerful and explosive graphic designers of his time. This Rimy River is a catalogue of an exhibition held at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles in 1994. Long out of print, it has been sought after by designers and collectors who have followed the work of V23. Most admired for his collaborative energy and imagination, Oliver set the stage for a graphic revolution in the eighties and nineties. His impact was left on the post-punk music industry and influenced a generation of designers exploring the possibilities of type and print. The book is high calibre design tour de force, the process of production itself being an important element of the design. Those who have worked with Vaughan Oliver and V23 (including Ian McKay) as collaborators or clients describe their recollections of the V23 design experience in probing commentary alongside the works shown.
