A 528 pages reference monograph with more than 1000 illustrations gathering twenty years of works by M/M (Paris), one of the most emblematic design duo of the 21st century.
Emily King is a London-based graphic design historian and curator.
M/M (Paris) is a creative partnership between Mathias Augustyniak (born 1967 in Cavaillon) and Michael Amzalag (born 1968 in Paris),
founded in 1992. Working within the framework of language and design, they practice
across many cultural fields. Unfettered by the structures of disciplinary boundaries, these
self-described artists perceive their professional title to be Strategic Creative Directors.
From their Parisian studio, M/M has worked and developed strong relationships with
musicians (Björk, Madonna, Jean-Louis Murat...); contemporary artists
