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 Great book for class! Will be keeping for Graphic Design career. 12 juillet 2016

Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I needed this for a class, so I didn't have a choice to buy this or not. This was not for leisure reading.
However, I will definitely not be selling this to another student! I like the way everything is written; it's very down to earth and easy to understand. If you're looking for a specific person or time period, it's very easy to locate that. This is the first history book I've found that made sense when divided into chapters; everything else I've read (for school or leisure) was disorganized and confusing. I'll be keeping this for future reference.
There are a lot of pictures of the artifacts they are talking about, and lots of good information.
The book came in excellent condition with no bends, rips, or fraying. The cover is actually a dust jacket, the actual book is white.
1.0 étoiles sur 5 This is literally the worst book I have ever rented 1 juillet 2016
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The binding on the book was broken, and the outer binding was ripped. The white book was dingy and stained, and the pages were covered in highlighter. The book was so badly damaged that the pages were hanging on in small sections. After one month of carefully trying to get this book to last the semester, the pages are literally falling out in chunks. I have to keep the book on a flat surface at all times and pray that more pages don't come out each time I turn the page. This is literally the worst book I have ever rented, and I am not sure how they can charge a customer for such a mangled, disintegrating product. Maybe I was unlucky and just got a really bad copy, but I don't know how this thing is going to survive the return shipping.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Visual Communications without the Visuals? 31 mai 2013
Par Ananli - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Yeah, the digital copy of Meggs' History of Graphic Design might save you a few bucks. But honestly if you can get a hold of the book, do it. There was a conscious decision made to remove the images from the text; they are linked within it and you can scroll through them separately, you cannot immediately see any of the images as they are being written about and navigating back and forth is a pain. Overall it was poorly organized and every student in my class who bought this edition agreed that taking the images out of the text was confusing and impeded both speed of reading and memorizing the images.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book serves as a giant context for further study 23 septembre 2013
Par Chilly Willy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I haven’t read this entire tome yet, as I’ve only made time to study some of the chapters for class. But it is a fascinating read, discovering key figures and art movements in the graphic design history, especially when you see how they evolved over time. For example, you might read about how Jan Tschichold changed his mind about the rules he presents in his "New Typography" book after being imprisoned by the Nazi Gestapo for six weeks before escaping to Switzerland. He goes back to championing classic typography and also matching style to content instead of strictly applying his New Typography to everything. “Meggs' History” is full of that kind of information. They try to maintain an objective tone in the writing.
There are also loads of images with informative captions, which alone are going to help you loads over simply approaching the history of graphic design knowing very little, such as I did.
A used 4th edition would still serve the purpose, if you're on a tight budget.
