The book is introduced by a series of illustrated timelines highlighting the century’s movements, visual trends and technological breakthroughs, with pointers towards influences from other fields such as politics, technology and architecture. Ten chapters follow, each devoted to one decade.
Thorough and vibrantly illustrated analyses of its key styles are augmented by profiles of its most influential graphic designers, from Herbert Bayer and A. M. Cassandre through Alvin Lustig and Paul Rand to Tibor Kalman and David Carson.
Information about the typefaces and colour palettes that defined each decade, and step-by-step guides to recreating key looks and styles using modern software, are also included.
