About Warren Lehrer

American writer, artist, and designer Warren Lehrer is known internationally as a pioneer in the fields of visual literature and design authorship. Deemed an “oracle of the 21st century book” by Philip Meggs, Lehrer's work explores the vagaries and luminescence of character, the relationships between social structures and the individual, and the pathos and absurdity of life. His books include longtime Archive favorite French Fries (1984) and are widely acclaimed for capturing the shape of thought and reuniting the traditions of storytelling.
