"Graphic Style is the book to consult for an overview of graphic design styles from the industrial era onward. Heller and Chwast offer the reader a quick appreciation of every significant trend from Art Nouveau to Neo-Modern. Each succinct section is wonderfully illustrated with examples of graphic design that convey the essence of each movement. Now, in an expanded edition with over 700 illustrations, this essential design compendium takes us up to the present day. In a new section on the digital era, the authors shed light on the diversity of the 1990s, covering everything from the rise of Emigre magazine and typocentric design to the impact of club culture and the Internet."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
