Editorial Reviews


"...a glorious reflection of British design’s progress.... adding rich background details and critical insight to the history." -- Jim Davies, Print Magazine

"An inside look at how an aesthetic deeply influenced by popular culture, fine art, and fashion has evolved...." -- Library Journal

Book Description

The aesthetics of popular music and culture have been increasingly relevant to British graphic designers over the past several decades. Communicate presents a fascinating selection of work that displays this influence, featuring innovative projects by outstanding designers from the sixties to today that include album covers, political protest posters, psychedelic concert posters, and designs for books, magazines, and film.
