This is a well written and very useful, up to date History but it has missed out one the greatest designers of the 20th Century- Abram Games. Most Design Historians would place Games at the top alongside Saul Bass, Paul Rand and Milton Glaser. So this is a bit like history of pop music that misses out Bob Dylan or Frank Zappa. That said you get a lot of good stuff for the money.

I am a graphic designer and I have just embarked on a graphic design course. I bought this book thinking that it would be a good reference tool. It is that and more. It is a wonderful book and I would recommend it to anyone in the business, learning the business or just interested in graphic design. I can't praise it highly enough. I am so glad I made my purchase.
