Abstract:

"Author Steven Heller continues his engaging exploration of the significance and histories of various objects of design and their impact on both the particular and broader cultural environments in which they exist. Grouped into the collective themes of propaganda, media, language, and commerce, the objects discussed range from Zap Comix to Cold War graphics to Leo Lionni's children's books to au courant magazines of the 1990s. This volume also investigates larger movements and phenomena, such as Norman Rockwell's lasting impression on Americana, issues of plagiarism and censorship, and the "Big Idea" in advertising, and includes profiles of designers whose bodies of work helped determine the look and content of design today."--BOOK JACKET.
