Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Design Writing Research is a highly acclaimed critical study of graphic design and typography. Authoritative and beautifully produced, it is invaluable for anyone interested in the art and history of books, advertising and in theories of visual and verbal communication. The authors examine a wide range of design practices, from the history of punctuation, the origins of international pictograms and the structure of modern typography, to the role of design in mass communication, with essays on stock photography, illustration and advertising itself. The book concludes with a time-line spanning 200 years of design in the US, showing how modern graphic design emerged in response to the cultural, political and economic climate.<P>The authors of this important book, now published for the first time in paperback, have revolutionized both the theoretical and practical aspects of design. Abbott Miller is the Director of Design/Writing/Research, an award-winning multidisciplinary design studio, and also sits on the board of the American Center for Design. Ellen Lupton is the curator of Contemporary Design at Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York and has lectured widely on design and contemporary culture.
