Bibliographic: 100 Classic Graphic Design Books
Bibliographic: 100 Classic Graphic Design Books is a compilation of the best design books of the last 100 years. Covering a huge range of material—historic titles from pioneering type foundries to the best of recent monographs from today's leading studios—this volume provides a unique insight into the evolution of graphic design in the twentieth century and is a wonderful resource for designers and print aficionados.
Classic graphic design manuals by László Moholy-Nagy and Josef Müller-Brockmann are included, alongside pioneering instructional titles on advertising and corporate identity. Monographs designed by and covering the major individuals and studios of the era—from A.M. Cassandre and Alexey Brodovitch to Stefan Sagmeister and Peter Saville—are detailed, along with groundbreaking anthologies on trademark design, Polish film posters, the impact of the avant-garde, and more.
All the books, whether classic histories of Bauhaus design or rarely seen sourcebooks of symbols and type, are illustrated with a wide selection of spreads and covers, all in color.
