Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With input from a diverse range of industry experts/designers, theorists, critics, historians, and curators, this anthology is the first to focus exclusively on the history of industrial design.

This pioneering guide traces the entire history of industrial design, industrialization, and mass production from 1850 until today. Sixty comprehensive essays written by designers, theorists, advertisers, historians, and curators detail the most crucial movements, issues, and accomplishments of industrial design. They combine news reports on the very first design workshops, aesthetic manifestos, lectures, and more from the biggest names in the field: William Morris, Henry Dreyfuss, and Victor Papanek, to name only a few. The Industrial Design Reader is an excellent resource for educators, students, and practicing designers.

• Features design from not only theoretical and aesthetic perspectives, but also from a socio-political point of view, with texts from Karl Marx, Ralph Nader, and others

• Copublished with the Design Management Institute, which will actively promote the book to its membership

Book News Annotation:

From John Ruskin's "The Nature of Gothic" and Karl Marx's "The Capitalist Character of Manufacture, through writings by Thorstein Veblen, Frank Lloyd Wright, Frederick Winslow Taylor, Walter Gropius, Henry Ford, Ralph Nader, R. Buckminster Fuller, and Richard Nixon; editor Gorman (history of art and design, Southern Illinois U.) presents an eclectic history of writings on industrial design from 1851 to 1999. She chose the 62 readings for canonicity and readability, as well as for a diversity of critical approach and "the notoriety of the writer in the field of design and elsewhere" (hence Nixon, the reader might presume).
