History of Modern Design
Filling the gap for an extensively illustrated history of modern design, this introduction provides a balanced, chronological survey of the decorative arts, industrial design and graphic design from the eighteenth through the twentieth centuries. Focusing on the appreciation of design as a creative activity, as well as an enterprise conditioned by economic, technological and social history, Raizman includes the study of products and furnishing designed for mass consumption, and examines the social context for the democratization of culture. The author examines supply, demand, and design from 1700-1850, arts, crafts, and machines from 1850-1914, design after the Great War, 1918-1944and international modernism and mass culture after World War II. For design professionals.
