Abstract:

"Steven Heller and Georgette Balance have assembled an anthology of graphic design history in this collection of long-lost essays. Forty critical essays by leading writers, along with an interview with Louis Danziger, explore and define the unique developments, personages, and events that shaped the course of graphic design from its earliest beginnings at the turn of the twentieth century. Examining magazines such as Esquire, Avant Garde, and Fact; design styles such as Bauhaus, Dutch design, and Russian film posters; and designers from Georg Olden to Lucian Bernhard to Fortunato Depero, Graphic Design History offers a glance into the evolution of graphic design over the past century.

Culled from obscure, hard-to-find sources, the writings in this collection provide a resource for students, teachers, scholars, and practitioners of graphic design."--BOOK JACKET.
