An excellent outlook into graphic design, past and present! The book that turned designers on to reading is back, chock full of new stories about the graphic icons and idols of today's design culture. As witty and to the point as ever, the more than 125 thought pieces - 30 of them brand new - offer a vast taste of the aesthetic, political, historical, and personal issues that move today's global design community and fans, organized into eight thematic categories - persuasion, media, language, identity, information, iconography, style, and commerce.
