This volume is essentially two books in one: a history of graphic design and a selection of contemporary work that makes use of past inspiration. Reinterpreting the past never goes out of fashion. But in a climate oversaturated with today's slick technologically-driven imagery, there has been a return to the familiar imagery and typography of, particularly, the 20th century. Drawing on classic examples from the history of graphic design, New Retro shows how the past can be updated for today. Well researched, it includes an historical survey of graphic design and a portfolio of the best contemporary international designs from the editorial, packaging, identity, promotional, typography and type design fields.
