In Two-Dimensional Man, Paul Sahre shares deeply revealing stories that serve as the unlikely inspiration behind his extraordinary thirty-year design career. Sahre explores his mostly vain attempts to escape his "suburban Addams Family " upbringing and the death of his elephant-trainer brother. He also wrestles with the cosmic implications involved in operating a scanner, explains the disappearance of ice machines, analyzes a disastrous meeting with Steely Dan, and laments the typos, sunsets, and poor color choices that have shaped his work and point of view. Two-Dimensional Man portrays the designer's life as one of constant questioning, inventing, failing, dreaming, and ultimately making.

Paul Sahre is a graphic designer and has operated his own independent practice since 1997. A frequent visual contributor to the New York Times, he has authored two books, Hello World and Leisurama, redesigned two of Canada's largest magazines, built and destroyed a life-sized monster truck hearse for the band They Might Be Giants, and appeared in a 90's Winona Ryder film. Paul received his BFA and MFA from Kent State University and has taught a highly coveted portfolio class at the School of Visual Arts for the past 13 years. He has lectured extensively all over the world, and is a member of Alliance Graphique Internationale. He lives and works in New York City.
