Scope and Contents This book served as the catalogue for the exhibition at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institution. The exhibition was organized around questions of form, function, and medium and focused on designers beginning their careers in the 1980s and 1990s. The first section dealt with messages on the street, graphic design competing for public attention. Next, typography was analyzed, the art of creating letters for reproduction and organizing them in space. The third section of the book considered the chief social function of design: to visualize the identity of institutions and audiences. The last chapter looked at publishing including books, magazines and computers. Selected interviews with noted graphic designers appear in the final section of the book. Pages of the following items, which are held by the Sackner Archive, "Through Light and the Alphabet" by Johanna Drucker, the 1989 Time Warner Annual Report, and the Independent Project Press are reproduced.

Scope and Contents

The exhibition, subtitled "Text and/as Image and/as Design and/as Meaning," was an interdisciplinary exhibition of visual art, artists' books, graphic design, and visual poetry by artists who were examining the ways that texts and images produced meaning in contemporary society, specifically in the United States in the 1990s. In a detailed essay, the curator, Johanna Drucker writes, "In the late 20th century artists in all areas work with an awareness of the legacy of conceptual art's attention to language and idea, with pop art and postmodernism's interest in appropriating language and image from the realm of popular and consumer culture, and with the ongoing engagement of artists with a commitment to the traditions of innovative expression." The Sackner Archive lent twenty five works to this exhibition and are acknowledged in the curator's note. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
