Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The period was one of great artistic dynamism and extreme political turmoil, as explained in the informative text accompanying snappy presentation of some 300 examples of Italian graphic design. The daring typography and streamlined imagery of trademarks, labels, packages, posters, books, and magazine covers reflect the forces of Futurism, Fascism, and a burgeoning consumerism. The press release identifies this book as one of a "series," which bodes well for designers and others if future volumes are of the same high quality. 8.5x8" Annotation c.
