Description

This visual survey of graphic design styles through the ages is an essential resource for designers, art and design students, and art lovers. With more than 700 illustrations, it is the only wide-ranging history of graphic design to be completely visual, and many readers treasure it for its amazing trove of images. This new edition has been brought up to date with a new section that encompasses trends from the last decade. Graphic Style, said Studio magazine of the first edition, “should be on the shelf of every serious designer/illustrator.” This fourth edition is still indispensable.
