5.0 out of 5 stars Great comprehensive overview on design 18 Mar 2008
By Susan E. Farricielli - Published on
This is a great book that reveals the roots of modern design showing how modern design evolved from traditional craft and was as much influenced by industrialization as it was a reaction against the industrial revolution of the victorian era. It is required reading in my History of Design course.
