"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 : Edward Bawden [and] Eric Ravilious by Brian Webb ( Book )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 94 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 "Featuring some previously unpublished images, this book presents, in over 100 illustrations, every aspect of their creativity, including advertising, designs for wallpapers, posters, book jackets,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
Edward Bawden's Kew Gardens by Peyton Skipwith ( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book draws on Edward Bawden's delightful illustrations, posters and linocuts of Kew Gardens made over 60 years. It presents a light-hearted social history of Kew, peopled with the many Hanoverian Kings, Queens and Princes who resided there, as well as courtiers such as the 3rd Earl of Bute, Joseph Banks Fulke Greville and their proteges including William Chambers, William Aiton, Fanny Burney and Sir William Hooker. Alongside Bawden's posters and linocuts, the book is illustrated with the contemporary caricatures of Thomas Rowlandson, George Cruikshank and James Gillray as well as botanical illustrations by Franz Bauer, Evelyn Dunbar and others. The book also reproduces in full Bawden's previously unpublished manuscript guide to Kew Gardens, drawn by the artist when he was just 19, and the redrawn illustrations and maps in Robert Herring's 1930 book Adam and Evelyn at Kew
John Piper : design by Brian Webb ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 80 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

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Claud Lovat Fraser is one of the great unsung heroes of 20th century British design. This book examines his legacy in a range of diverse fields
F H K Henrion : design by Ruth Artmonsky ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
F H K Henrion was one of a distinguished group of graphic designers who brought cutting-edge design to the rather parochial English scene. Henrion is best remembered for his evangelical work in corporate identity design, raising the status of the graphic designer to boardroom significance, and establishing the authority of designers as the total rebranders of organizations
Abram Games : design by Naomi Games ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Design, compiled by Naomi Games and Brian Webb, features more than 200 illustrations of the work of Abram Games.

Enid Marx : design by Ruth Artmonsky ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A new collection of printed and woven textile design patterns of Enid Marx (1902-1998), encompassing examples of her work for the London Underground, Royal Mail and Chatto & Windus Publishers. Extraordinarily versatile and prolific, she became uniquely defined as a pattern maker, using textiles, paper and plastic in a way that was completely original, and while centred in the times that she was living and working, her designs enjoyed the amazing longevity of mass appeal
