Description

Providing a guide to the history and development of design since the Industrial Revolution, this book has an introductory essay and more than 200 entries - from "Creative Chaos" to "Wiener Werkstatte" - on the movements, terminology, writers and philosophy of design. Extensive bibliographical information and cross-references are included, and particular attention is paid to the new themes of contemporary culture, with explanations of how the fashions and cults of the 1990s have affected post-modern design. Catherine McDermott, who lectures internationally on design, is the author of "Street Style".
