Mixing messages : graphic design in contemporary culture by Ellen Lupton( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Graphic Design shapes the meaning and impact of all we see and read. Mixing Messages traces how both the aesthetic value and overall pervasiveness of graphic design have changed over the past fifteen years. In this period, technological innovation and, especially, the rise of the personal computer have drastically altered graphic design practice, triggering explosions of creativity in all forms of visual communication. From the independent producer operating out of the home to the publishing conglomerate, a more diverse design community is creating the images that affect us every day. From the printed page to the Internet, typefaces, colors, logos, and images transmit information and ideas, generating a literacy of the eye that affects us every day. In this important new book, a critical text accompanied by over 300 color illustrations explores the aesthetic, cultural, and technological issues that are shaping the future of graphic design. Featured is work by numerous designers, including Charles S. Anderson, Fabien Baron, Art Chantry, Stephen Doyle, Edward Fella, Tobias Frere-Jones, Dan Friedman, April Greiman, Jonathan Hoefler, Tibor Kalman, Zuzana Licko, Katherine McCoy, Paula Scher, and such global design offices as Landor Associates, Lippincott & Margulies, and Siegel & Gale. From this diverse array of practices, Mixing Messages constructs a rich picture of graphic design today."--from the publisher

Graphic design in the mechanical age : selections from the Merrill C. Berman collection by Deborah Menaker Rothschild( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing from Merrill C. Berman's private collection of twentieth-century posters, ads, photomontages, and graphic ephemera, this book showcases more than two hundred examples of progressive graphic design from the 1920s and 1930s. European, Soviet, and American avant-garde designers and artists of the time, using new technologies of mass production and mass distribution, marketed everything from salad oil and cigarettes to communism, utopian socialism, and the avant-garde itself." "These selections from the Berman Collection, most never before shown or reproduced in the United States, include works by well-known artists (Lissitzky, Rodchenko, Man Ray, and others) and by lesser-known masters. The book begins by detailing Berman's pivotal role in shaping the history of graphic design as he amassed his collection."--Jacket

Close observation : selected oil sketches by Frederick E. Church from the collections of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Design by Frederic Edwin Church( Book )

6 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frederic E. Church is increasingly recognized today as the leading painter of the Hudson River School -- the group of optimistic, realistic landscape painters who flourished during the mid-nineteenth century (1840-1875). He is a pivotal figure, and one who influenced his contemporaries greatly. Yet even Church is known almost solely from his finished oil paintings, which are large, detailed, and panoramic, with no hint of the artist's hand visible. This book brings, for the first time, scholarly attention and the eye of the connoisseur to Church's best oil sketches (112 are discussed and illustrated). In these works, the artist is seen working directly from nature, en plein air, with great speed and emotion. The sketches are astonishingly detailed, yet fresh and sensuous in execution. The book analyzes Church's stylistic progression, his use of sketches in the creation of finished studio paintings, and the formation and decline of his own vision (and that of the Hudson River School itself) as reflected in the changing style and use of the oil sketch. The book is divided into sections according to Church's major travels and subjects: the trips to South America, 1853 and 1857; Niagara; the voyage to the north to see icebergs; the trip to Jamaica, 1865; and his year-and-a-half-long journey to Europe and the Near East, starting in the autumn of 1867. The last years of his life Church spent the winters in Mexico and the summers at "Olana" -- center of the earth -- the house he designed and built in the fotthills of the Catskills. - Jacket flap
