Revised and updated to include all aspects of graphic design from 1840 to the present day, this classic reference defines key movements, trends, styles and techniques, and covers an enormous range of graphic designers, typographers, illustrators, poster artists and printers. It ensures that the names at the forefront of contemporary graphic design practice take their rightful place alongside major historical figures. From William Morris, inspired by nature, and El Lissitzky's Constructivist design to the Designer Republic's visuals for the music and club scene and John Maeda's computer graphics, this book presents an international overview of graphic design. The industry's most influential styles are recorded and prominent movements are explained, from Arts and Crafts to Postmodernism and beyond. Important trends are reflected in the newest entries, for example Irma Boom and Mevis + Van Deursen. Totally redesigned by Derek Birdsall, this edition includes over 150 additions and over 50 new pictures. A revised chronological chart outlines the relationship between movements, technology and designers around the world.
