Graphic Design: History in the Writing (1983–2011)
Edited by Catherine de Smet and Sara De Bondt

The first anthology of its kind, Graphic Design: History in the Writing (1983–2011) comprises the most influential texts about graphic design history published in English. Edited by a graphic design theorist and a practicing graphic designer, the book chronicles the development of the emerging field of graphic design history from 1983 to today, underscoring the aesthetic, theoretical, political and social tensions that have underpinned it from the beginning. Graphic Design: History in the Writing is a long-overdue sourcebook for students, teachers, curators and anyone else interested in the past and future of a field in rapid development.
