Graphic design, like many other sources of human activity, is undergoing profound changes." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.

Scope and Contents

This second edition attempts to provide a conceptual and pictorial overview of significant graphic-design accomplishments. The book is organized into five general chronological sections: The Prologue to Graphic Design; A Graphic Renaissance; The Industrial Revolution; The Modernist Era; The Information Age. Each section is then divided thematically into chapters. This edition has expanded content, revised format and typography, timelines for each section and an expanded bibliography. In keeping with the Epilogue in the first edition, Meggs designed the dust jacket of this second edition using computer generated graphics. Although the number of pages in the second edition is slightly smaller than the first edition, this is because the font size is smaller; actually, the text has been expanded to cover recent contemporary trends in graphic design. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
