Abstract:

"This book presents a philosophy of Asian graphic design through a series of wide-ranging illustrated dialogues between Sugiura Kohei of Japan and his colleagues Ahn Sang-soo and Chung Byoung-kyoo from Korea, Lu Jing-ren from China, Huang Yung-sung from Taiwan and R. K. Joshi and Kirti Trivedi from India. These designers , whose work transcends national boundaries, discuss varied topics including the allure of Chinese and Javanese characters, Korea's Hangul and India's Devanagari; the world of traditional books and what they offer us today; and their own unique approaches to design that build on past traditions as well as contemporary trends, from an Asian perspective."--Book jacket.
