This visual survey of graphic design styles through the ages is an essential resource for designers, art and design students, and art lovers. With more than 700 illustrations, it is the only wide-ranging history of graphic design to be completely visual, and many readers treasure it for its amazing trove of images. This new edition has been brought completely up to date, with sections devoted to styles of the twenty-first century, including the widely popular Street Art and Hand Lettering movements. Graphic Style, says Studio Magazine, "should be on the shelf of every serious designer/illustrator."
