Original Man – The Tautz Compendium of Less Ordinary Gentlemen is British designer/creative director Patrick Grant‘s passion project that celebrates the lives of extraordinary men filed under four rubrics: heroes, libertines, artists and stylists. Iconic personalities such as Iggy Pop and Takeshi Kitano are explored within 240 pages, via engaging short biographies and accompanying photographs meant to ”show you the essence of the man.” To help understand the landmark book, Gestalten.tv has released an interview with Grant who talks about the conception of Original Man, his views on the impact of digital media, and more. Copies will be available later this month at Gestalten, while pre-orders can currently be placed at Amazon.
