Philip Meggs has written the most throughly illustrated, definitive history of graphic communications. In the epilogue, Meggs notes the following: "At the time of this writing human affairs are undergoing a new revolution comparable to the industrial revolution that launched the machine age. Electronic circuitry, microprocessors, and computer-generated imagery threaten to radically alter our culture's images, communications processes,and the very nature of the work itself. Graphic design, like many other sources of human activity, is undergoing profound changes." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.

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.

Kerim Yasar, Princeton Univsersity reviewed this book (abridged by Sackner) on the Internet:William O. Gardner's Advertising Tower: Japanese Modernism and Modernity in the 1920s joins a growing body of English-language scholarship dealing with modernist and avant-garde writers and literary movements in interwar Japan. Gardner takes an explicitly historicist approach to his subject, writing that this work embraces the challenge "of probing the relationship between the modernist literatures that made a vivid appearance in the 1920s, and the rapidly transforming experience of urban life during the same period. In other words, it explores the relationship between Japanese modernism and Japanese modernity." This is an ambitious goal as...

Afrikan Alphabets: the story of writing in Afrika / Mafundikwa, Saki., 2007

 Item
Identifier: CC-47938-68961
Scope and Contents

Afrikan Alphabets will lead you to uncharted places in Afrikan cultures. This book is about the highly graphic pictographs, ideographs, and scripts devised and designed by Afrikans themselves. In Afrika, the harmony of art, nature and spirit is the rule, not the exception. In terms of the graphic arts, alphabets designed by Afrikans show that the spiritual line is free and unencumbered by the rule of the grid. Afrikan alphabets express ideas, systems of thought, cultural imperatives, aesthetic preferences, and spirit. They are one of the important keys to help unlock what has been kept hidden from so many for so long. These alphabets with their deeply meaningful graphic constructions show the intelligence and ingenuity of Afrikan peoples." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.

The book reproduces several examples of Hebrew religious poems and Kaballah. --...
