Encompassing everything from record covers and posters to typography and advertisements, Mid-Century Graphic Design is a stylish guide to the hugely popular graphic style. With their eye-popping palettes, experimental type, and images buzzing with kinetic energy, mid-century grap...hic design remains innovative and beloved. Packed with hundreds of color illustrations, this stunning volume features work from a wide selection of international and influential artists: Charles and Ray Eames, Paul Rand, Alvin Lustig, Elaine Lustig, Alexey Brodovitch, Jim Flora, Herb Lubalin, Olle Eksell, Miroslav Sasek, and more. Drawn from advertising, magazine and record covers, textiles, travel posters, and children's books, the selections show the development of the design style globally. Classic Saul Bass film posters and Lucienne Day textile prints stand alongside lesser-known gems, making this an essential collection for fans of the era.
