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] traces the role of the designer as a messenger of culture." –STA Journal

"Now . . . a hefty, yet concise, documentation of the entire field exists." –Print

"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. Now, after fifteen years of development in graphic design, this expanded and updated Third Edition includes hundreds of full–color images and new material in many areas, including alphabets, Japanese and Dutch graphics, and the computer revolution which has impacted all aspects of contemporary design and communications. With its approximately 1,200 illustrations, lucid text, and interpretive captions, the book reveals a saga of creative innovators, breakthrough technologies, and important design innovations.

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
∗ The Computer Graphics Revolution

A History of Graphic Design is recognized as a seminal work; this Third Edition surpasses in detail and breadth the content, design, and color reproduction of previous editions. It is required reading for professionals, students, and everyone who works with or loves the world of graphic design. This comprehensive reference tool is an invaluable visual survey that you will turn to again and again.

An important part of this book is the online resource which was the whole reason to why i bought it.

However, the online resource portal is still under development and you wont get any access to it.

Basically Wiley is marketing something that is non excisting, fraud if you ask me.

Dont buy this book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 THE affordable reference in Graphic Design: a must for students, but not only 17 février 2017
Par Vero - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Highly recommended to any Design lovers to learn about the origins of Graphic design. I had to rent this updated edition, but I already have the 4th one which is slightly different. I love this complete book full of illustrations and very useful if you have a lack of inspiration. Yes we never cease to reinvent and re-adapt, re-adjust, re-create, but in a new context and with different tools to communicate visually, colorfully, concisely and intelligibly to different, but multicultural audiences all over the world. Yes, It does means we still have creativity! This book is really a good example of great design from the very beginning to the latest years of GD. Very interesting and a must to understand the most important concepts. Great!!!!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Anyone with An Interest in Graphic Arts, Technology, and Design 28 janvier 2017
Par L. D. Harris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Bought for an art history course (History of Graphic Art) and this is really informative. I'm only up to Chapter 9 at the point of this review, but I'm really enjoying reading it. I like it a lot so I give it 4.5 stars.

Though the text is small and densely packed, the illustrations and examples break up the pages into readable portions that should be easy for most people to get through.

I highly recommend this text for anyone who wishes to know more about typography, graphic communications, and multimedia history. Even those who are instructional and curriculum designers for online courses will learn a great deal from this text.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Electronic Version Does Have Pictures 25 août 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I almost didn't buy this in Kindle format because one of the reviewers said it didn't contain the pictures. The pictures are there, but I'm sure if you are viewing it on a Kindle Reader they won't show up well, but if viewed on a PC or tablet/Kindle Fire they are all linked in the text and located at the end of the chapter--all in color and easy to see on a PC, which is how I was viewing it. I didn't have the time to order the hardback so I went ahead with the kindle purchase, thinking for what I needed, I didn't need the pictures. I was surprised that the first page that opens up explains how to view the pictures and how they are linked back to the text (so you can go back and forth). You actually can view as you read by clicking the link or elect to just see all the pictures at the end of the chapter. This book is better viewed on a PC, tablet or Kindle Fire so you can see the referenced pictures in rich full detail.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Bible of graphic design histories 18 février 2016
Par PhilippeH - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If you are interested in graphic design and more specifically in its history, this book is (still) the bible. I teach History of Graphic Design to postgrad students and Meggs' book is the basis of my course I know for a fact that this is also true for most of my colleagues. This book initiated the tradition that graphic design history should start with the invention of writing and a history of typography. Only the second part deals with "real" graphic design (after 1900). Nevertheless, one should keep in mind that this book was written from an American/English point of view. I would recommend you supplement this great book with books dealing specifically with French, German or Russian graphic design. Not that Meggs fails to deal with these subjects, but other authors might make you get a more balanced, more European picture.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Graphic Designers; steal this book. 3 mai 2010
Par Joe Marino - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book is a must have if you are taking any graphic design courses. If you are already a graphic designer this book is also a must have. My class is long over and I wont sell this book, that says something considering I am a starving student, well maybe not starving.

I bought this for a class and I ended up reading it just because the information presented is both interesting and also very digestible to the average reader. It is a very interesting book that you can keep long after the class is over. One thing is it makes a fantastic coffee table book. It would not be out of place in the lobby of your design firm.

Content (+)
The content of this book covers from our earliest designs all the way to modern design and the impact it has on our lives. The content of this book does not shy away from the controversial to the mundane.

Images (+)
I made the video clip so you could see the great artwork in this book. Many full color images are wonderful references that can be used when you are designing. "Good artists copy, great artists steal", Pablo Picasso

Text (+)
As I was saying this is not just boring text droning on and on. It, in fact is very interesting to those that are into graphic design or art. Any art is graphic design, and all graphic design is art. You really get that feeling after reading this book.

Overall this book is a great value at what I paid for it which is twice what it cost now. Get this BRAND NEW and you will have this book for many years.
