Set to bring joy to even the most hardened of graphic designers, a new book from Gestalten provides an illustrated history of graphic design, complete with cut-out-and-keep designers. With an all-star cast, Graphic Design History for Rainy Days, takes the reader on a gentle tour of the subject, courtesy of a time-travelling grandfather and his enquiring grandson. The book is designed by Studio 3, the in-school design agency at the Graphic Design Department of Westerdals School of Communication in Oslo. As the pair journey from the time of the industrial revolution, right up to Jessica Helfand's mid-90s design studio, they meet everyone from Max Bill and Wim Crouwel, to Neville Brody and Paula Scher in between. Graphic Design History for Rainy Days is a charming take on the medium and, as is the current vogue, the book even contains a selection of cut-out designers, your own Bauhaus diploma, and a miniature Apple Macintosh that can be assembled in about 10 minutes. This is one for the Christmas list. --Creative Review Blog
