De Smet, Catherine and Sara De Bondt.
Graphic Design History in the Writing 1983-2011
Tracing the history of graphic design over the past 30 years, this dense and informative reader presents a large selection of essays which address the origins and purposes of the field. Originally intended to accompany a May 2011 conference in London, the investigation expanded its scope as one text lead to another and further relevant input was discovered. The first anthology of its kind, this reader comprises some of the most influential published texts about graphic design history, underscoring the aesthetic, theoretical, politcal and social tensions that have underpinned it from the beginning. Included are texts by Steve Baker, Wen Huei Chou, Johanna Drucker, Victor Margolin, Catherine de Smet and numerous others.
