"Jaroslav Andel analyzes the most innovative of these designs...these pages set a standard for contemporary practice." -- The New York Times, June 23, 2002
From the Publisher
With networked computers gradually replacing printed pages as the primary carriers of information, we are witnessing a full-scale transition in the way we communicate. In order to more fully understand the cultural significance of this technological revolution, artists, designers, and scholars are beginning to re-examine the history of printed material. Andels scholarship shows how even the earliest experimenters coined innovations that remain powerful conventions of page design today, and how some, such as El Lissitzky, actually predicted the rise of electronic media.
