Design Humor by Steven Heller

Book Description

From the first satiric cave drawings to the quirky humour of Push Pin studios, Design Humor explores what makes wit and humour such important tools in graphic design. Compiling some of the most clever, ironic, and acerbic pieces from annuals, exhibitions, and designer's drawers, this entertaining sourcebook demonstrates how to communicate effectively through visual puns, type play, and ironic images. It features dozens of classic examples of comical type creations such as Goudy Stout as well as the exuberant playfulness of post-modern design. Full of captivating historical and philosophical references from such "humour experts" as Groucho Marx, Max Eastman, and Mark Twain, Design Humor is an invaluable resource for designers and design students, as well as a treasured collection of design wit for the enthusiast!
