Looks gorgeous

Rob's book cover

See for Yourself: A Visual Guide to Everyday Beauty by Rob Forbes looks like a feast for those who enjoy finding design in their everyday surroundings. According to the author,

See for Yourself is a book I just completed, coming out in May, but its available now at PUBLIC. The book is comprised of over 500 images that I have taken during the last ten years from walks and bike rides in cities around the world. It’s in these everyday settings where I seek out quirky and unusual objects not found in tourist guides; benches in Milan, bike locks in Amsterdam, fire hoses in Maine, house numbers in Charleston, and hundreds of other pedestrian works of design. I wrote it with the same intent I had in founding PUBLIC Bikes: to encourage us to become more engaged and connected with our cities, and to put a smile on our faces.

Mr. Forbes has a wonderful eye for color and form. I’m looking forward to seeing this title.
