100 Ideas that Changed Graphic Design

New in the ‘100 Ideas that Changed…’ series, this illustrated guide to key ideas in graphic design in the last century is a great resource for anyone interested in the subject.
The book demonstrates how ideas influenced and defined graphic design, and also how those ideas manifest in objects of design. The 100 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, pixellation).
Lavishly illustrated, the book is both a great source of inspiration and a repository of some of the best examples of graphic design from the last hundred years.
