Summary:
"This vibrant book tells the history of the Modernist design movement and how it completely revolutionized graphic design. A completely new aesthetic approach to graphic design and typography was created in Europe between 1919 and 1933. An avant-garde group of Dadaists, Futurists, and Constructivists created a brilliantly innovative language of design. This comprehensive volume shows how the work of pioneering artists such as El Lissitzky, Jan Tschichold, and László Moholy-Nagy broke conventions in color, typography, and composition, setting new standards in graphic design that are still in use today." -- Publisher's website.
