Seymour Chwast celebrates the daily routine of getting dressed in this fittingly whimsical and satisfyingly unique novelty book. Unlike more traditional books on this topic that deal with the how of getting dressed, Get Dressed! instead tackles the why. The text “Get dressed to read about dragons” accompanies an illustration of a boy dressed in a makeshift knight costume.

Graphic Style is a timeline of graphic design from the Victorian to digital era. It's a book that you don't read so much as flip through. It's good for reference but it doesn't do much to add dimension to the different styles.

I used this book for my course this year and I read it from front to back and I think it has some awesome inspiring images in it as well as some great information about different type periods of design.

And yes, I'm totally counting this as something I read, because I did. Granted, I was forced to because of college. But at least I enjoyed it.

Beautifully laid out (they must know someone in graphic design or something). Engaging and incredibly informative, this is the best historic breakdown of graphic styles in poster art that I have ever come across and lordy-lordy they sure don't skimp on the pictures. Worth every single penny and 20,000 more.

Just not what I expected. The examples are fine, but instead of an overview of minor and major art movements and styles, I get a mishmash of confused history.
Daryl
i LOVE IT! 95% images, perfect for design history. I look here for inspiration weekly, at least.
