Review

“This book is a gift to all current and future practitioners of, users of, and participants in environmental graphic design and explores and uncovers a history that was not examined or compiled until Richard Poulin delved into it.” -Deborah Sussman, Honorary Fellow, American Institute of Architects; Fellow, Society for Environmental Graphic Design



“Mandatory reading for every graphic designer and architect, as well as all those that aspire to these two professions, and most importantly for all who are concerned with the humanizing possibilities inherent in the visual arts.” - James Stewart Polshek, Fellow, American Institute of Architects

Format: Hardcover
The author's enthusiasm on the subject definitely shines through in this book. He invites you on this journey through time and space to stop and think about some of the most iconic and familiar built signs, symbols, and structures that you recognize and maybe even encounter in your day-to-day life, but haven't really ever contemplated their stories and how their presence and specific design actually has impacted you.
