'

This visual survey of graphic design styles through the ages is an essential resource for designers, art and design students, and art lovers. With more than 700 illustrations, it is the only wide-ranging history of graphic design to be completely visual, and many readers treasure it for its amazing trove of images. This new edition has been brought completely up to date, with sections devoted to styles of the twenty-first century, including the widely popular Street Art and Hand Lettering movements. Graphic Style, says Studio Magazine, \"should be on the shelf of every serious designer/illustrator.\" '

Synopsis:

When Graphic Style first appeared in 1988, it quickly won recognition as the book to consult for a visual overview of graphic design styles through the ages. Now this essential design compendium has been updated with a brand new section on the digital age, covering all the developments of the past 12 years from typocentric design to the impact of the Internet. Anyone who wants to know more about Dutch Art Deco or Italian Art Nouveau, or any of the other graphic styles of the 20th century, should turn to this book, with its more than 700 brilliantly selected illustrations and insightful text.

Synopsis:

The book to consult for an overview of graphic design styles from the industrial era onward. A quick appreciation of every significant trend from Art Nouveau to Neo-Modern. Now, in an expanded edition with over 700 illustrations, this essential design compendium takes us up to the present day. A new section on the digital era covers everything from typocentric design to the impact of club culture and the Internet.

This is a great overview of the significant design styles from 1850 to now. Great illustrations and concise writing. Just wish it was available!
