Design : Edward Bawden [and] Eric Ravilious by Brian Webb ( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Design is an excellent introduction to the work of two major British designers and artists, Edward Bawden (1903-1989) and Eric Ravilious (1903-1942)." "Featuring some previously unpublished images, this book presents, in over 100 illustrations, every aspect of their creativity, including advertising, designs for wallpapers, posters, book jackets, trade cards and ceramics." "Bawden and Ravilious met in the Design School of the Royal College of Art in 1922, members of a generation of students described by Paul Nash, one of their tutors, as belonging to 'an outbreak of talent'. Their shared interests in illustration led to experiments in print making. Bawden's early attempts at lino-cutting developed into a skill that he used until the end of his life. Ravilious quickly developed into one of the most renowned wood engravers of the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET
Design by E. McKnight Kauffer ( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Design is an excellent introduction to the graphic work and design of American-born Edward McKnight Kauffer (1890-1954). Kauffer was one of the outstanding graphic artists of his generation, creating some of the most memorable poster-images ever to adorn the billboards of Britain. Born in humble circumstances in Evansville, Montana, he progressed from itinerant theatre work to employment in a San Francisco bookshop, with time to study art. Chance meetings with a benevolent patron enabled him to continue his studies, first in Chicago, where, in 1913, he saw the Armory Show of modern European and American art, and then in Paris. On arrival in Europe he spent time in Munich , where he was overwhelmed by the posters of Ludwig Hohlwein. Reaching Paris in the autumn of 1913, his time there was curtailed by the outbreak of war. Planning to return to the US he quit France for England; however, an introduction to Frank Pick, the Publicity Manager of the London Underground, led to a commission for the first of many posters, and Kauffer remained in England for the next twenty-six years. His design, Flight, was purchased by Francis Meynell to launch the Daily Herald, and became one of the best known images of the twentieth century." "In addition to work for the London Underground Kauffer created powerful images for Shell, incorporating his innovative use of typography. He exploited a similar blend of Vorticist/abstract book design and typography for many dust-jackets, including those for The Week-End Book and Lytton Strachey's Eminent Victorians, whilst Roger Fry coined the phrase 'Cubisto-Cabbalistic' to describe his illustrations to Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy. He extended his range to include mural and stage design. The original costumes and sets for Ninette de Valois's Checkmate had to be abandoned in Holland during the War. In 1940, frustrated at the lack of challenging employment, he and his partner, Marion Dorn, abandoned everything and returned to America, where, in the post-war years, he created a further series of memorable posters for American Airlines."--BOOK JACKET
Design : David Gentleman by Brian Webb ( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Another instalment of the highly acclaimed "Design" series, this time looking at contemporary designer David Gentleman (b.1930). David's early training engraving designs on small boxwood blocks ensured that his unique style retains the characteristic intensity of the miniaturist even when it is enlarged. He attended the Royal College of Art in Kensington from the autumn of 1950, and was tutored by some of the finest artists of the time, including Edward Bawden and John Nash. Lithography became his medium of choice and he has since worked on projects as diverse as designs for postage stamps and wine labels to the hundred-metre long panels at Charing Cross Station. The "Design" series is the winner of the Brand/Series Identity Category at the British Book Design and Production Awards 2009, judges said: 'A series of books about design, they had to be good and these are. The branding is consistent, there is a good use of typography and the covers are superb". -- Product Description

John Piper : design by Brian Webb ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume focuses on the work of John Piper (1903 - 1992). Piper remains something of an enigma: an antiquarian who was among the pioneers of non-representational art in Britain; an abstract painter who drew his inspiration from the paintings of Turner and mediaeval stained glass; and a romantic with a penchant for geometric design. Despite, in formal terms, coming to art late, Piper became one of the most diverse designers of his generation
