"Inspirational." - by Emma Gregg
Brilliant!!! I'm so glad I cam across this book. I'm a freelance graphic designer and this book resonates so much with me and my work. I've read parts out to my partner who's a music producer and it connects with him too. Creative people I highly recommend this book. Its come into my life at just the right time, inspiring me and giving me confidence in what I am doing. Thanks Radim!

"The look of the day before yesterday" - by Robin
Graphic design gets the Taschen treatment: a huge book (380 millimetres deep) with 482 pages; 2500 images; beautifully designed and printed; in depth coverage; a second edition to bring it all up to date. The large page size certainly helps, there are several images (mostly posters) 330 millimetres deep.

The seven decades all kick off with a brief introduction spread, in three languages, followed by a time-line spread which has an intriguing collection of historical detail and lots of small images. For example, in 1936 Boulder Dam was completed in Nevada and The Phantom makes his first appearance in newspapers. The remaining pages of the thirties have a wide range of graphic material like posters, magazine and brochure covers, logos, book jackets, record covers, packaging and spreads devoted to designers Jean Carlu, Max Bill, Cassandre, McKnight Kauffer, Herbert Matter, Takashi Kono, Antonio Boggeri, Hisui Sugiura, Herbert Bayer, Lester Beall and ... full review

"Beautiful book with modern design concepts to whet your appetite" - by Vesper_Flea (Leeds)
This book looks and feels beautiful. It has some lovely illustrations and examples of the basic design concepts. It is very inspiring.

It would have been a 5 star book, but i felt that the text isn't as descriptive or useful as it could be.

"Good & not so good..." - by N. Wu
Book itself is incredibly GOOD. Amazon.co.uk's box packaging/protection is incredibly BAD.

"Good purchase, interesting and inspirational." - by WalterBishop
Logos, identities, magazine layouts, book covers, record sleeves.... and just about anything you can think of, this is a book with 500 designs, many of which are iconic, and nothing else.

It is a small sized book, pages are roughly postcard size with one design per page. The only text is artist credits and format. Paper is thin (I'd guess around 100gsm or just over) and uncoated, which could be disappointing to some but I find acceptable for the volume of work on show and the price charged.

Good purchase, interesting and inspirational.

I'd probably buy a larger, better quality version if available as some designs such as magazine layouts are impossible to read.

"Good book" - by Šimon Halaj
Pre-ordered this book some time ago. The book is very similiar to first volume (style, graphic design, content..etc) But still offers new things to consider if you aim to be graphic designer. Satisfied

"Got this book for college and am very satisfied with it" - by KevMac
Got this book for college and am very satisfied with it. I have quickly read through it and am using it for a current assignment. It is very helpful in designing grids, but I haven't got through everything yet. Am looking forward to applying the techniques to my own designs. Arrived in perfect condition.

"Definitely for hardcore coders" - by U. Sule
If you are heavily focused in coding and really struggle with design like me, this book will be a guaranteed help.

I really struggle to start off my designs, but it's much easier to improve a bad one. This book really helps you understand the fundamentals of design, and colour; from there all you need to do is practice.

Brilliant and highly recommended.

"An easy resource covering distinctive accomplishments by worthy design thinkers" - by N. Wu
“Visionaries" are described as people with original ideas about what the future will or could be like. That was unlikely the plan of those graphic design thinkers featured in “Graphic Design Visionaries” by Caroline Roberts. This book covers a broad scope of international designers who had the talent and fortune of working with corporations that enabled their creative freedom beyond the usual for its time. Paul Rand, FHK Henrion, Saul Bass to more obscure names like Ladislav Sutnar, Giovanni PIntori (Olivetti) & Cipe Pineles (Seventeen Magazine) are represented. And yet there’s a void left by the lack of female representation (Margo Chase, Marian Bantjes) or extraordinary designers like Alvin Lustig & Stefan Kanchev. (Perhaps an opportunity for a followup?)

In all fairness, the intention here is not to be an exhaustive encyclopedia-style collection, but rather an easy resource covering distinctive accomplishments by worthy design thinkers. It functions to give each designer ... full review
