Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A unique cross-disciplinary survey of design history, A History of Design from the Victorian Era to the Present offers a concise overview of the modern milestones of architecture, interior design, graphic design, product design, and photography from the Crystal Palace of 1851 to the iPhone at the turn of the twenty-first century. This abundantly illustrated volume traces modern design across continents and cultures, highlighting the key movements and design traditions that have shaped the world around us.

From the whirlwind of innovation that gripped Victorian England at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, the book details design's rich evolution through more than a century and a half, including Art Nouveau's breathtaking ornament, the "new vision" of the Bauhaus, the rise of the International Style, and postmodernism and contemporary currents in the graphic arts and landscape architecture. Major design figures are framed against a background of evolving aesthetic idioms. Especially attuned to how technological innovations catalyzed daringly conceived skyscrapers, bridges, and cantilever chairs, the authors also chart the impact of technical advances in the disciplines of industrial design, typography, and photographic portraiture.

This new edition of a classic text first published in 1970 expands coverage to include developments in design over the last forty years, with emphasis on its global reach, the impact of the digital revolution, and new trends in sustainable design that will shape the century to come.

Book News Annotation:

The first edition of this compact (8.25x9") book for design students was published in 1970; it covered design up to 1958. This second edition extends coverage to 2008, with special emphasis on the influence of digital technology and sustainable design. This edition expands coverage from the traditional design epicenters such as London and New York to explore developments in many cities around the world, including the Middle East and Africa. Illustrated with color photos and illustrations on every page, the book surveys design traditions and movements of the last 160 years, looking at how technological achievements spurred design innovations in architecture, photography, and interior, industrial, and graphic design during four periods: the Victorian period, art nouveau, and early modern and late modern design. The book also looks at the dynamism between design and societal movements and political and historical factors. Ferebee is founder and director emerita of the Institute for Urban Design.
