The Visual Dictionary of Graphic Design
Abstract. Zeitgeist. Bauhaus. Pluralism. The Visual Dictionary is just the book for anyone who's ever been a bit hazy about the meaning of the many terms used in art and design. Each term is explained visually and put in context, providing the reader with a clear understanding of the often mystifying language of these specialized fields. To help the reader understand and remember the meanings, each entry uses a different typeface (a history of the fonts is in the back of the book) and includes a picture in an appropriate illustration techniques. Eclectic, useful, and entertaining, The Visual Dictionary takes the complex and makes it simple.
