tellmewhy

In 2003, Princeton Architectural Press published tellmewhy, the story of our studio’s first 24 months. We designed the book—which was authored by the awesome Clare Jacobson—in four short weeks. The print run was just shy of 10,000 copies and we received 58 cents for each book sold. It’s been out of print for quite some time now. If anyone is interested, we do own the movie rights.

Pat Metheny, the very first project we ever worked on.
The big Boym book featuring chapter openings with strange pop-ups.

Back of the book and invite to the book launch party.
It’s been over a decade since the book was published and we still get quite a few emails from people who have read it. We find that unbelievable and beautiful.
