Présentation de l'éditeur

Critical acclaim for previous editions of A History of Graphic Design

"I expect it to become a foundation and keystone of serious study . . . it is a fortress work." –Communication Arts

"It is a noble and formidable undertaking." –he Artist′s Magazine

"An excellent and invaluable work." –Library Journal

"This is a reference work that reads like a novel. It′s comprehensive, authoritative, graphic, and exciting." –U&lc: The Journal of Typographics

"[This book] establishes graphic design as a profession. Bravo!" –Design Issues

"A significant attempt at a comprehensive history of graphic design . . . it will be an eye–opener not only for general readers, but for designers who have been unaware of their legacy." –The New York Times

"Mr. Meggs enthusiastically conveys these excitements to us, from the invention of photography and ′popular graphics of the Victorian era′ through the Arts and Crafts movement, Art Nouveau, the Secession, the isms . . . to the Modern Movement. . . . More importantly, he shows us the joins as well as the parts."–rinting World

After a decade of research by the author, the first edition of A History of Graphic Design was heralded as a publishing landmark by the Association of American Publishers, who awarded it a coveted award for publishing excellence.

Graphic design is a vital component of each culture and period in human history, and in this account, an extraordinary panorama of people and events unfolds, including:
∗ The Invention of Writing and Alphabets
∗ Medieval Manuscript Books
∗ The Origins of Printing and Typography
∗ Renaissance Graphic Design
∗ The Arts and Crafts Movement
∗ Victorian and Art Nouveau Graphics
∗ Modern Art and Its Impact on Design
∗ Visual Identity and Conceptual Images
∗ Postmodern Design

This comprehensive reference tool is an invaluable visual survey that you will turn to again and again.

Must have reference book for graphic designers 20 mars 2001
Par SL - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
In my opinion, this 3rd Edition "A History of GD" is the best reference book written about graphic design. This 500 plus pages book/bible is simply divided into 5 sections, 1) The Prologue to Graphic Design, 2) A Graphic Rennaissance, 3) The Industrial Revolution, 4)The Modernist Era, and 5) The Age of Information. The topics range from the invention of writing to, creation of new typogrphic styles to, the digital revolution and computer art. There are plenty of graphics and photos on every page to accompany the wonderfully written text. If you study art history or graphic design, I think this would be a great reference book to have. It will take some time to read the entire book. But this is like a text book, so, reading only part of the chapters would be quite informative as well. Once you are done, you will definitely appreciate graphic design/graphic designers.

Most Comprehensive Graphic History text around! 3 août 2005
Par Rachel Lieberman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I bought this book for a class and am incredibly impressed. It covers the evolution of graphic communication from the earliest cave paintings to the web. This book has incredible pictures and describes different styles in an easy to understand format. It is thick, but is one of the best reference books for choosing style and historical content. I normally sell back my textbooks, but this one is staying in my library!

The Book 17 juin 2001
Par Mikhail - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is The Book, a must-have. Incredibly helpful. What I like best - it provides an outstandingly complete context in which certain individual works and trends were developed. Also, you don't have to read the whole - very big - book to understand the things you're currently looking for; it's a great reference. And if you don't find something, at least you know where else to look and which next bookshelf to address. Nothing comes close.

Not as good as former editions 2 février 2008
Par Design Professor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
After using all the editions, the latest isn't up to the late Phil Meggs' standards. In its attempt to
be concise and concept oriented, it omits much cultural and marginal information that was
interesting and flavorful. This edition is not as delicious as the others. I'm thinking of switching
textbooks for my students.

What a great book ! 27 décembre 2006
Par Lauren Carney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I am a graphic design student, and this book was assigned for one of my classes. The History of Graphic Design, is such am amazing book. I find myself flipping through the pages for fun! You could read it over and over again, and always learn something new. This is a very thick book, full of vibrant pictures, and great for gathering your own ideas ! If you could only buy one book on the history of graphci design, this should be that book !
