This text presents the sequel to "Design Literacy", a collection of essays examining the significance and histories of various objects of design. The objects discussed in this text range from the vintage fair and concert posters of the 1930s to a Rolling Stones CD cover from the 1990s. The volume also investigates larger movements and phenomena, including Norman Rockwell's influence on Americana and Cartoon Network's hold on American children. Like the first volume, it aims to present an eclectic look at how, why and if graphic design (in the broadest sense) works as an influence on the public eye.
