Product Description

Review

Definitely a constructive and positive way to while away the introspective winter months. -- Grafik Magazine, March 2006

Roberts attempts a revolution in the sometimes predictable world of graphic design retrospectives with her new book. -- Wallpaper, November 2005,

About the Author

Lucienne Roberts studied graphic design at the Central School of Art and Design. After a brief period at The Women's Press, she established the studio sans+baum, hoping to ally a commitment to accessible and engaging design with a socially aware agenda. Roberts' new studio Lucienne Roberts started at the end of 2006, working mainly in the arts and voluntary sectors. In 2000 Roberts was a signatory of the First Things First manifesto. She has taught at Yale and the London College of Communication and was a D&AD judge in 2008. Roberts is a regular contributor to Eye magazine and Grafik.

I was first drawn to this title because of the cover, which is really striking. It's a fantastic looking book with content to match!

This book sets the standard for useful graphic design books. Rather than bombarding you with fashionable names and faddy images the author explains the birth and growth of graphic design, allowing me to consider current trends in a broader context. The case studies are gripping, with some of the most long-standing and respected names in the industry recounting their work and experiences in the industry. These examples are tidily tied into a timeline of 1945-69 showing world and cultural events. This book takes the history of graphic design out of its `bubble', setting contemporary work in an expansive and broad landscape. Looking at such a vast catalogue of designers was excellent for project work during studying, while also, on a personal level, being truly inspirational.
