Dont buy at Kindle, paper is better 3 février 2012
Par Vlad Golovach - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Great book but the Kindle version is awful - bad styles, low image resoluton. The publisher should be spanked for such product, considered that you can always buy Inkling version that is so much better prepared.

Just keeps getting better 26 novembre 2011
Par AvidReader - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Megg's History of Graphic Design just keeps getting better. The author's completely re-wrote some sections of this book, and added new information. The topics covered bring you right up to contemporary designers/work. Designers from all over the world are also featured. Some of the older sections have also been re-worked, included better quality and color images for early printed books. The section on the development of modernism (in Russia, Europe, and the US) is better than anything you will find in comparable history books. This still leads the field in Graphic Design history. I wish I could have used this version of the text when I was in school. It is definitely a must have for anyone who calls themselves a designer; it seems expensive, but you will get your money's worth out of it. And the book itself, physically, is very high quality and will last a long time.

Inspiring History Lesson for Designers 24 novembre 2011
Par Andrea - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book is incredible. If you are a graphic designer, I highly recommend it for your library of inspiration and resource.

Meggs' History of Graphic Design provides such rich history and insight into the world of expression through visual communication. It starts with cave drawings and the origins of the Alphabet to the new digital age and everything in between.

I was surprised to learn how much of our ancestors' findings are used to this day, including origins of font names, and basic printing methods.

The book also goes into explicit detail on how visual evolution was, and still is, so profoundly affected by world economics, war and revolution.

Of course, a book of this caliber would not be complete without images and succinct footnotes. Great to flip through for design inspiration.

If anyone thinks we just "make things pretty" or "doodle all day", well, they're probably just jealous. However, if you want to put them in their place, hand them this resource. This book truly makes me proud to be a graphic designer.

Tried and True History of Graphic Design 10 décembre 2011
Par julie - Publié sur
Format: Relié
As a designer, having a copy of Megg's History of Graphic Design is very helpful. Not only is it a thorough history of design touching upon the start of the alphabet, typography, printing, web design, and everything in between, it's great to get some inspiration for your next project. This latest edition is full of high quality, colorful images and fantastic examples of graphic design pieces that at times in history have been decorative, inspirational, informative, useful and educational.

Going through this 570 page book, it's easy to see how extensive the world of graphic design is. Megg's touches upon several design movements (Art Nouveau, Bauhaus, Post Modernism, American Craft), as well as international design, and the way they reflect the times and lifestyles and influence on the world. While this tried and true Megg's History of Graphic Design has been brought up to date, it should be reminded that this is written as a text book and is heavy on copy. The final chapter makes this latest edition complete with it's write up and visual examples of digital design. I mean, this book is showing cave drawings in Chapter 1 and magazine covers on an iPad in the last chapter! You can't get more thorough than that.

Getting fluffier by the edition, but still a good text. 18 janvier 2012
Par C.J. Hustwick - Publié sur
Format: Relié Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
The late Philip Meggs was responsible for producing the single greatest book I've read on the history of graphic design, and since he died in 2002 others have taken up the task of revising this work. Unfortunately, this venerable text is getting compromised, and I found this Fifth Edition larded with obsequious, toothless writing. I'll give a couple of examples:

Page 60-61 covers the area of illuminated Persian manuscripts and painting. It's a nice enough little passage I suppose about Islam being "one of the world's greatest religions", but instead of a meaningful discussion and comparison of these works with European manuscripts, there is almost zero criticism. I'm just not seeing the "magnificent" history of Persian painting or how many of these manuscripts provided anything new or groundbreaking. Incidentally, Sir Kenneth Clarke covered this issue in some detail back in the 1960s with his BBC series "Civilisation".

The last and newest chapter of the book covers iPhone apps, internet applications, "typography in the built environment" and other hybrid beasts that now pass for graphic art. There is a brief write-up on motion graphic and special attention given to Hollywood's Danny Yount. Personally, I found his vector-graphics titles for "Kiss, Kiss Bang Bang" totally imitative, unoriginal "Bass-lite"; a parody of styles crafted by the pioneering commercial artists of the 1960s. Honestly, I'd expect a bit more of a critical discussion from a book that is at the epicenter of the design camp (not the film world). There's been an awful lot of this nostalgia in title sequences, whether it be "Catch Me If You Can", "Monsters, Inc." or even French "OSS 177" movies.

I might also add that I am not particularly pleased with the actual design of the book itself, with its photography-based dust jacket art and new miniaturized serif typeface for the body text. Still, this book remains a solid choice for the student and is loaded with Meggs' insight. I'd just save some money and purchase an earlier edition is all. There are better books out there that focus solely on digital design.
