    100 Ideas that Changed Graphic Design
    This accessible book demonstrates how ideas influenced and defined graphic design. Lavishly illustrated, it is both a great source of inspiration and a provocative record of some of the best examples of graphic design from the last hundred years. The entries, arranged broadly in chronological order, range from technical (overprinting, rub-on designs, split fountain); to stylistic (swashes on caps, loud typography, and white space); to objects (dust jackets, design handbooks); and methods (paper cut-outs, pixelation).

    100 Years of Fashion Illustration
    A visual feast of 400 dazzling images, this is a comprehensive survey of the genre over the last century. The book also offers an overview of the development of fashion, as seen through the eyes of the greatest illustrators of the day. Early in the century, fashion illustration reflected new, liberating currents in art and culture, such as the exoticism of the Ballets Russes, while the postwar period saw inspiration from the great Parisian couturiers. After the dominance of the celebrity fashion photographer in the 60s, a new generation of illustrators emerged, embracing the medium of the computer, while many returned to more traditional techniques.

  • 30,000 Years of Art
    30,000 Years of Art
    "Following on from Phaidon's bestselling The Art Book, published in 1994, 30,000 Years of Art was conceived by Phaidon editors as a companion volume. First published in 2007, the book offered an original and accessible way of looking at art and the story of human creativity.

    Great works from all periods and regions are arranged in chronological order in a book designed for a general readership. The resulting timeline leads to compelling browsing: surprising juxtapositions offer intellectual pleasure and a sense of wonder and discovery. Each work is presented with key caption information and a short text providing an accessible critical review, explaining its contribution to the development of the history of art.

    Celebrating the vast range of human artistry, the book presents art in a way different from other art history compendia, revealing the huge diversity, or in many cases similarity, of artistic achievements around the globe. Moreover, the selection of entries for an individual culture will comprise an abbreviated history of the art of that people. Thus, while artworks from ancient Greece or the European Renaissance or pre-Columbian Americas will be interspersed with contemporaneous works created in Africa, India or Japan, an extraction of the Greek or Renaissance or American works could stand alone as an essential abridgement of the finest art of that period or culture.

    An illustrated timeline, full index and extensive glossary of schools and movements make 30,000 Years of Art, an indispensable volume in any art library.

    Praise for the original volume:

    'This book has delightful curiosity value, there is plenty to fascinate' - The Times

    'A bold new publishing event' - The Daily Telegraph

    'An essential addition to any library' - The Bookseller

    This is a book art-lovers and cultural anthropologists-scholars and laypeople alike-are guaranteed to cherish. -Publishers Weekly

    'A museum of masterpieces made for a coffee table.' - NPR

  • Ai Weiwei Yours Truly
    Ai Weiwei Yours Truly
    In 2014, renowned artist Ai Weiwei created @Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz, and engaged nearly 900,000 visitors in a conversation about human rights and freedom of expression. One installation in the exhibition was Yours Truly, which invited visitors to write postcards to prisoners of conscience around the world. In total, 92,829 messages of hope, humour, and solidarity were written and sent. This book delves into those postcards' lasting impact. Five former prisoners and their loved ones reflect on the experience of receiving hundreds of postcards while imprisoned. A statement by Ai Weiwei, plus essays by the exhibition curators and rights advocate Jasmine Heiss, contextualise this extraordinary project. Photographs from the exhibition show visitors and the postcards they wrote. The book also includes a guide to defending human rights and four pre-addressed, tear-out postcards, inviting readers to get involved and send personal messages to current prisoners of conscience.
