Book: Graphic design time line : a century of design milestones

Heller, S. and Pettit, E. (2000) Graphic design time line : a century of design milestones. New York; [Garsington: Allworth Press; Windsor] [distributor].

Review of book: Each double page spread was a year and it gave brief chunks of information about different subjects in the year of the design industry. An example would be if something was invented or a designer died or was born. It was a good read to get a brief design history and I thought it would help me with my contextuals in looking into postmodernism but as it was so brief it didn’t help me in that retrospect. It did help me to get a sense of how the design industry developed and how the past effected the present.
