Baseline Shift: Untold Stories of Women in Graphic Design History


Baseline Shift showcases the diverse women whose work has shaped, shifted, and formed graphic design as we know it today.

From an interdisciplinary book designer and calligrapher starting out in Harlem's Renaissance, to the invisible drafters of Monotype's drawing office, the women represented here include auteurs, advocates for social justice, and creators ahead of their time.

The fifteen essays in this illustrated collection come from contributors with a variety of backgrounds and perspectives.

Baseline Shift is essential reading for students and practitioners of graphic design, as well as anyone with an interest in women's history.
