About the book:

COVER DESIGNER: Bass/Yager & Associates A BOOK YOU CAN TELL BY ITS COVERS . . . The covers of the four editions of Psychology reflect a common theme: the journey to understanding oneself and the world is complex and challenging, exciting but also risky. The covers, by the world-renowned graphic designer and Oscar-winning filmmaker Saul Bass, are variations on the metaphoric quest for knowledge. Bass's work reminds us that while psychology opens doors to imagination, creativity, and insight, the illumination of wisdom never comes easy. The way is always fraught with perils and possibilities, dilemmas and choices. HarperCollins is delighted to have this opportunity to showcase Saul Bass's ingenious work. Bass, who won an Academy Award for his stunning documentary Why Man Creates, has designed some of the most famous logos in the world (including AT&T, United Airlines, and Exxon) and some of the most famous opening-credit sequences in moviemaking (including Psycho, Vertigo, The Seven Year Itch, Goodfellas, The Age of Innocence, and Cape Fear).
