Abstract:

" ... A History of graphic design for rainy days takes its readers on a charmingly illustrated and cleverly revealing whirldwind tour through this creative discipline's milestone developments, personalities, and technologies. With its engaging design, humorous narratives and fun-filled exercises, this activity book offers an entertaining loook at the many aspects of graphic design -- from typography's humble beginnings at the dawn of the industrial revolution to the internet-based font distribution of today; from the first printed Christmas cards in the 1850s to David Carson's revolutionary layouts of the 1990s; from styles including art nouveau, Dada, Bauhaus, and psychedelic to innovators such as William Morris, Jan Tschichold, Saul Bass, and Jessica Helfand."--Cover.

A grandfather takes his grandson on an illustrated journey through time to teach him the history of the graphic arts. Snippets of information and narrative as well as short quiz-like exercises are included throughout the two-color illustration spreads.
