Paul Sahre

Paul Sahre (born 1964) is an American graphic designer perhaps best known for his book cover designs and illustrations for the New York Times.

Graphic designer, illustrator, lecturer, educator and author Paul Sahre established his New York studio in 1997. While consciously maintaining a small office, Sahre has nevertheless built a large presence in American graphic design.

The balance he strikes between commercial and personal projects is evident in the physical layout of his workspace: part design studio, part silkscreen lab, part classroom. In one room he designs and prints posters (some of which are in the permanent collection at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum) for various off-off Broadway theaters, while in the other room he is busy designing book covers for authors such as Rick Moody, Chuck Klosterman, Ben Marcus and Ernest Hemingway.

Sahre is also a frequent visual contributor to The New York Times. He is the author of Leisurama Now: The Beach House for Everyone, 1964-_______, a loving look at a short-lived product of early 1960s consumer optimism: affordable middle-class summer homes.

Sahre received his BFA and MFA from Kent State and teaches graphic design at the School of Visual Arts. He lectures extensively all over the world. He is a member of Alliance Graphique Internationale.
