100 Ideas that Changed Graphic Design
100 Ideas that Changed Graphic Design is an accessible and compact book which demonstrates how ideas influenced and defined graphic design, with stunning visual examples.
It is both a great source of inspiration and a provocative record of some of the best examples of graphic design from the last hundred years. The entries, arranged broadly in chronological order, range from technical (overprinting, rub-on designs, split fountain); to stylistic (swashes on caps, loud typography, and white space); to objects (dust jackets, design handbooks); and methods (paper cut-outs, pixelation).
100 Ideas that Changed Graphic Design is an inspirational book for dipping into whenever ideas are needed. A great read for graphic designers and those interested in visual communication.
