Graphic Design A Concise History

This authoritative documentary history begins with the poster and goes on to chart the development of word and image in brochures and magazines advertising corporate identity television and electronic media and the impact of technical innovations such as photography and the computer For the revised edition a new final chapter covers all the recent international developments in graphic design inc. This book was uite dry and crammed a lot of information into it so it was not the easiest thing to readThe book follows Graphic Design from the 1800 s to the late 1990 s It starts with the change from Graphic Art to Design and touches on Posters Bauhaus New Typography the beginnings of design the war and propaganda the Avante Garde Modernism Futurism Swiss style Neue Graphik 60 s Psychedelia protest design and new technology with everything in between It mentions all the major players and some that I hadn t heard of all the different big styles and movements and the major events of the the last 150 years and how they affected design or vice versaThis is a good source of information as a starting point and although it goes into some detail it isn t really in depth about any particular subject but then that isn t the point of the book It s a good place to start if you want to learn about different styles and movements or about the history of Graphic Design and there is a fantastic bibliography at the back of the book that helps you to find books to find out I bought this book at the beginning of my degree course to help in the theory side and ended up buyingborrowing books on each individual subject but used this as a good starting point It is also a good reference book to find out about designers from different eras and styles but the imagery is purely to help illustrate the points in the text and tend to be black and white thumbnails rather than full colour full page prints so this is not a good book to pick up for some visual inspirationA good reference book to start with to help you find out about the different styles and movements designers and eras before going on to research in depth

Richard Hollis puts into practice his remarkable English and leads the reader through an entrancing passage through the History of Design Almost stripped from personal remarks his simple stories and theoretical explanations make you reconsider what s been and what s coming I am really grateful for being given the book and would recommend it to every designer
