New in the "100 Ideas that Changed..." series, this book demonstrates how ideas influenced and defined graphic design, and how those ideas have manifested themselves in objects of design. The 100 entries, arranged broadly in chronological order, range from technical (overprinting, rub-on designs, split fountain); to stylistic (swashes on caps, loud typography, and white space); to objects (dust jackets, design handbooks); and methods (paper cut-outs, pixelation).

Baker & Taylor
Presents a history of the ideas that created the critical mass that produced the art and craft of contemporary graphic design.

An interesting survey demonstrating techniques in graphic design that have been adopted and changed over the past 200 years. Particularly interesting, and what I found enlightening, is the number of techniques and style from Bolshevik propaganda that have been widely adopoted. Worth a look, certainly.

Terrific illustrations (would be fairly sad if this book failed in that regard) and jargon-free one-page explanations for why each was an important idea. Makes you look at things like ads, magazine covers, dust jackets, etc. from a different perspective.
