Deco españa : graphic design of the twenties and thirties by Steven Heller( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in Spanish and English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vibrant and emotional, Spanish Art Deco brings a unique twist to the style of this era. Neither classically refined like French Deco, nor streamlined like American, Spanish Deco shows the influences of its own distinctive culture. Here was a highly industrialized country on the cusp of the advertising age, bringing to commercial design its own sense of style and of the avant-garde. It was also a country in the throes of social strife, and Deco Espana reveals the power of graphic design used for political as well as commercial purposes - notably in the posters created in the tumultuous days of the Spanish Civil War, many of which are reproduced here for the first time."--Jacket

"Deco typestyles, like Deco architecture and furniture, were the heralds of the Machine Age, designed to embody progress. Endowed with a jazzy modernistic sensibility and baptized with evocative futuristic names such as Vulcan and Metropolis, these spectacular typefaces paved the way for a new era of communication via the printed word.

Grafica della strada : the signs of Italy by Louise Fili( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than three decades, renowned graphic designer and self-described Italophile Louise Fili has traveled the cities and countryside of Italy cataloging the work of sign craftsmen in whose hands type takes on new life with a tantalizing menu of styles. Classical, eclectic, or Futurist; in gold leaf, marble, brass, wood, wrought iron, enamel, ceramic, or neon; painted, carved, inlaid, etched, tiled, or stenciled-- the creative possibilities are endless. Grafica della Strada is Fili's photographic diary of hundreds of Italy's most inventive restaurant, shop, hotel, street, and advertising signs. A major influence on Fili's own work, many of these marvels of vernacular design live on solely in this book, a typographic love letter to Italy that will be an inspiration to designers and Italophiles everywhere
Counter culture : the allure of mini-mannequins by Steven Heller( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If sex sells, then what better come-on for merchants of the repressed decades of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s than the come-hither gaze of a coquettish counter-top mannequin?" "In Counter Culture, Steven Heller and Louise Fili draw the curtain on a colorful peep show of commercial culture. Theirs is a surreal look at how mini-mannequins and other counter-top displays play on the unconscious desires of consumers, guiding them to that ultimate act - the consumption of goods." "Heller and Fili's mutual obsession with the art of popular culture has given us over eighty books. Their extensive collection of mannequins, evocatively photographed here by Tony Cenicola, is stored in a New York apartment. "At night," Heller winks, "they come alive.""--Jacket
