'Scratching the Surface' is a beautifully designed book that contains the writings of Adrian Shaughnessy. This writer and graphic designer is passionate about both subjects, and this book combines his two loves.

The book's layout is quite minimal, featuring mostly white pages, but Shaughnessy has injected a shot of color into his publication by having occasional full page spreads and the edges of pages in bright pink.

This intriguing design will capture the attention of design enthusiasts as well as people who are purely curious about the book's contents. 'Scratching the Surface' challenges the notion that "designers don’t read," and is made to engage and introduce its readers into the world of graphic design.
