The first edition of the Meggs’ History of Graphic Design (1983) was considered a landmark in publishing history by the members of the Association of American Publishers. Now in its fourth edition, this fundamental work continues its long tradition of supplying complete and balanced information.
This Spanish-language edition contains a lucid text and interpretative captions, with hundreds of fullcolor illustrations and the most advanced information, and includes a chapter on modern typographical design.
This historical panorama covers the invention of writing and alphabets, mediaeval manuscripts, the origin of printing and typography, Renaissance Graphics design, the Arts and Crafts movement, Victorian design, art nouveau, modern art and its impact on design, visual identity and conceptual images, postmodern design, and the computer revolution.”
