Publisher Comments:

The digital revolution has brought with it a dizzying multiplication of new styles and techniques in the field of graphic designnot to mention a whole new professional jargon. The Designer's Lexicon is the only cross-disciplinary technical dictionary that captures this rich and often confusing profusion of design-speak. It is packed with over 4000 terms that cover the broad spectrum of practices a modern designer must be familiar with: traditional graphics, pre-press, photography, printing, typography, and computers. Four hundred color diagrams and illustrations visually supplement the definitions. With a sturdy concealed spiral binding that reduces wear-and-tear, The Designer's Lexicon exemplifies the criterion designers seek most in a reference bookutility. For established professionals navigating new design terrain, as well as students, production managers, and printers, this is an essential dictionary for a new century.
