Publisher Comments:

The Museum of Modern Art Design Encyclopedia is the most comprehensive design reference guide to date. Compiled by Mel Byars in consultation with an international team of design experts, it features designers from all over the globe, both legendary names and lesser-known figures. Each designer entry consists of dates, a biography, details of professional training, major works, exhibitions and awards, and a bibliography. Other entries discuss firms, materials, groups, and movements; from Acerbis to Zuber, Bakelite to wicker, the Aesthetic movement to the Vienna Secession. With over 700 illustrations, this is an invaluable compendium of the world of design in the last 130 years.
