Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Complete with numerous illustrations, this is an ideal desk reference, providing answers to endless historical questions such as when a style or technology was invented, when a designer was born or died, when an influential work was created, when a movement began, and when a school was founded. Two-page spreads are devoted to each year of the century, from 1900 to 2000.

Book News Annotation:

Describes developments in graphic design over 110 years. Material is presented in two-page spreads devoted to each year, covering major as well as off-beat occurrences in graphic design, advertising, technology, popular culture, art, and politics. Includes b&w photos and illustrations on every page. Heller is art director of the New York Times Book Review and co-chair of the MFA design program at the School of Visual Arts. Pettit is a graphic designer and consultant.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This matchless volume is the first to record the milestones of graphic design, from its beginnings as a viable art and craft to its most sophisticated, present-day accomplishments.
