Graphic War
Donald Nijboer
1550464248
Aug 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
In a foreword, Peter Castle calls this book "a tribute to the myriad designers, draftsmen, technical and graphical illustrators, artists, and cartoonists who contributed to the millions of images on the pages of wartime technical and training manuals, the wall posters, and the vital recognition portrayals of aircraft, ships, and armored vehicles." These drawings and illustrations covered every aspect of the fighting machinery, weaponry, and training programs of the Allies in World War II, as well as those of Germany, Italy, and Japan. During the war, thousands of what Nijboer calls air diagram posters were produced. These 40-inch-by-30-inch works of art included everything from multicolored cutaway drawings of enemy aircraft to simple illustrations bearing reminders such as "Beware of the Hun in the Sun."

Art Is Work
Milton Glaser
1585670693
Aug 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
From book jackets and LP covers to ad posters and soup cans, Glaser has designed them all. This new volume is his showcase. In the introduction, he suggests that we substitute the word work for the word art , in order to "restore art to a central, useful activity in daily life." By subverting commonplace words, objects, and symbols in his own work, Glaser has accomplished that goal. For example, his highly recognized I [love] NY ad campaign turned T-shirts and bumper stickers into a mass of moving canvases. A follow-up to his first collection published 25 years ago, the bountifully illustrated Art Is Work outlines Glaser's career over the past quarter century. The work is good, according to his scale of art appraisal. And the several sequences showing how a drawing develops from the raw stage into...


Meggs' History of Graphic Design
Philip B B. Meggs
0471699020
December 2005
Textbook Hardcover
·
 
The New York Times
A significant attempt at a comprehensive history of graphic design...it will be an eye-opener not only for general readers, but for designers who have been unaware of their legacy. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Critique Magazine, Pamela Williams, Spring 1997
With this book, Meggs made it easier for designers to envision their work in terms of history. The final pages of each edition attempt to put young designers into historical context, perhaps before their influence can be accurately assessed. Although some may argue that it's an effort to control history rather than report it, this book makes for a lively debate. A History of Graphic Design, now in its third edition, stands as a monumental contribution to the field. --This...

Amphigorey
Edward Gorey
0399504338
January 1980
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The title of this deliciously creepy collection of Gorey's work stems from the word amphigory, meaning a nonsense verse or composition. As always, Gorey's painstakingly cross- hatched pen and ink drawings are perfectly suited to his oddball verse and prose. The first book of 15, "The Unstrung Harp," describes the writing process of novelist Mr. Clavius Frederick Earbrass: "He must be mad to go on enduring the unexquisite agony of writing when it all turns out drivel." In "The Listing Attic," you'll find a set of quirky limericks such as "A certain young man, it was noted, / Went about in the heat thickly coated; / He said, 'You may scoff, / But I shan't take it off; / Underneath I am horribly bloated.' " Many of Gorey's tales involve untimely deaths and dreadful mishaps, but much like...


The World on Sunday: Graphic Art in Joseph Pulitzer's Newspaper (1898 to 1911)
Margaret Brentano
0821261932
September 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Husband and wife team Baker (Double Fold) and Brentano rescued one of the last surviving sets of the New York World from the British Library and, in a labor of love, sorted through a decade's worth of its issues. They present reproductions of comics, advertisements, portraits, political cartoons, caricatures and other illustrations from the turn-of-the-20th-century mass-circulation daily paper. These images, they say, celebrate a "vaudeville revue of urban urges and preoccupations." To take a sampling of these fascinating illustrations (all elucidated by Brentano's historically illuminating captions): an 1899 two-page real estate spread features delicate black-and-white drawings of the Astor holdings, "like bars of music in a hymnal of real estate." From the same year, a green and red portrait of Mark Twain...
