FROM COOL HUNTING: "The scope is broad but intelligently refined, connecting all aspects of graphic design, from the age-old technique of text ornamentation to the relatively nascent appearance of pixelated images and digital type."
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
A reader realizes that the authors probably agonized over what to mention, to illustrate, and to leave out. They probably didn't want to stop at 100 ideas, and many of the ideas, like No. 58, could have their own books, not just two pages. I bet the authors, too, wanted their book to be bigger. We are in good hands; Steven Heller was an art director at the _New York Times_ for over three decades and Véronique Vienne has been the art director of various magazines.Read more ›
Each of these topics can be covered further through some simple research, in case you want more in-depth understanding. This book simply gives a brief overview of each of each subject area and a few examples. Makes for a great conversation starter as you can flip through the pages and be inspired or forced to look at a subject differently.
Overall - a great primer into the world of Graphic Design.
But if you'd rather have bits of information in print, get the book. And don't forget about Heller. He's amazing! Love him.
This is a visually stunning presentation of design elements that have brought the art from early writing to the dazzling art form is is today.
Some people may quibble over the impact of certain cited advances or failure to include other inventions, practices and processes. However, the volume is stunning in its depictions, glorious in its explanations and a wonder to instill wonder in readers.
