Icons of Graphic Design presents a unique history of design documenting a century of creative brilliance - a showcase that illustrates how the best ideas perpetuate themselves over time, one great concept inspiring the next. Organized chronologically, examples are grouped in themes and include works from both famous and anonymous graphic artists throughout the century - from Toulouse Lautrec through Milton Glaser to Neville Brody and Art Chantry - that visually juxtapose each example to related designs from the past and future. Authors Steven Heller and Mirko Ilic illuminate their selections with revealing commentary on the graphic styles, devices and influences working together to reach new heights of effectiveness and originality.
