Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A sophisticated addition to Chronicle Books' popular design library, this lavishly illustrated volume offers a unique survey of Italian commercial graphic design during a period of both creative artistic vitality and extreme political turmoil. The first English-language book to showcase the bold typography and streamlined imagery of modern Italian design motifs on comercial products of the day, this fascinating and important resource for designers, history buffs, and collectors includes a discussion of the Futurist influence on the Italian Art Deco style and the success of such individualized expression despite a ruthless Fascist regime.

Book News Annotation:

The period was one of great artistic dynamism and extreme political turmoil, as explained in the informative text accompanying snappy presentation of some 300 examples of Italian graphic design. The daring typography and streamlined imagery of trademarks, labels, packages, posters, books, and magazine covers reflect the forces of Futurism, Fascism, and a burgeoning consumerism. The press release identifies this book as one of a "series," which bodes well for designers and others if future volumes are of the same high quality. 8.5x8"
