edited by Alexander Branczyk, Jutta Nachtwey, Heike Nehl
A collection of hundreds of contemporary typefaces, introduced by the designers themselves. While countless books showcase the latest in typographical design, this one presents the best printed media from the 50 most influential foundries, revealing a wide spectrum of work - from brochures, flyers and postcards to type-specimens and posters - that shows just how expressive and personal type can be. Foundries are organized alphabetically, and hundreds of fonts have been selected for their originality, impact and longevity. In many cases they have been created and applied by the same person, so the designer's original vision, from "cutting" the typeface to the final printed or digital result, is seen as a continuous process. Many of the fonts are already, or are destined to become, classics. A useful reference section lists typefaces and designers, making often obscure sources accessible in a single document.

Packaging Makeovers. Graphic Redesign for Market Change.
Whether a company has been in business for one year or for 100 years, redesigns are an inevitable, expensive part -- with vast ramifications -- of doing business. So although redesigns are relatively commonplace, they must not be taken lightly.
This book deconstructs package redesign, providing vital information for the business owner, who has to make this all-important decision, as well as for the designer, who must execute the project.
Our society is susceptible to messages sent by cleverly designed packaging. Whereas a budget-minded consumer might be drawn to inexpensive-looking boxes, someone looking for a pure, organic line of cosmetics would be attracted to upscale black-and-gold embossed packages. Designs use many tactics to grab attention. This book walks readers through the various approaches to packaging design as well as the various reasons for a readesign such as outdated packaging, a change of focus or market or in the target custmer etc. so business people and designers can choose the right strategy for their products and audiences.

Graphic Design. A Concise History.
From its roots in the development of printing, graphic design has evolved as a means of identification, information, and promotion to become a profession and discipline in its own right.
This authoritative documentary history begins with the poster and goes on to chart the development of word and image in brochures and magazines, advertising, corporate identity, television, and electronic media, and the impact of technical innovations such as photography and the computer. For the revised edition, a new final chapter covers all the recent international developments in graphic design, including the role of the computer and the Internet in design innovation and globalization. In the last years of the twentieth century, at a time when "designer products" and the use of logos grew in importance, the role of graphic designers became more complex, subversive, and sometimes more political?witness Oliviero Toscani's notorious advertisements for Benetton. Digital technology cleared the way for an astonishing proliferation of new typefaces, and words began to take second place to typography in a whole range of magazines and books as designers asserted the primacy of their medium. Designers and companies discussed here include Neville Brody, David Carson, Design Writing Research, Edward Fella, Tibor Kalman, Jeffery Keedy, LettError, Pierre di Sciullo, Tomato, Gerard Unger, Cornel Windlin, and a host of others.

with an introduction by J.L. Locher
M.C. Escher, the artist who lived from 1898 to 1972, suffers from horrible overexposure. Who hasn't seen the college dorm room posters, postcards, T-shirts, and coffee mugs of such well-worn images as a hand drawing another hand or gothic buildings with never-ending staircases? The mass reproduction of these images has carved a firm place in our popular culture, yet made the work dismissible as modern art. Beyond the familiar images, though, is an immense body of work. The Magic of M.C. Escher covers in depth the graphic illustrations, woodcuts, and lithographs of Escher's career. The artist has always attracted the attention of scientists, mathematicians, and teenage boys everywhere; the popular 1980s game Dungeons & Dragons seems to borrow heavily from the systematic yet mystical quality of his drawing style. With his amazingly repetitive graphic illustration and unflinchingly control of size, shape, and shading, Escher draws like a human computer. One can only wonder what he might have done with today's graphic tools.
The book itself is creatively put together, with foldouts, seemingly endless images, and a loving introduction by the director of the Gemeentemuseum in the Hague. The minimal text selections that appear throughout are quotes from Escher himself, many taken from letters to family members. These personal musings give candid insight into what he thought about his peers, his career, and his work: "I really do feel these days like a kind of 'specialist,' and I don't want to 'depend' on my specialty alone, but I also feel it to be my duty to devote myself to that as much as possible." This remarkable book is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the astounding work of the man who could create two-dimensional origami with a pencil. --J.P. Cohen
For the artist Escher, the skin of the visible world was a piece of cloth that could be cut, folded, shaped, and rearranged in many ways. This title presents many of Esher's greatest works, from the great master prints to numerous previously unpublished drawings, and arranges them to form a cinematic journey of discovery. His preparatory sketches and jottings, which give insights into the working processes of his mind are also included.
