This book evaluates how we perceive buildings in different ways depending upon our academic and professional background. With reference to the Seattle Central Library, it illustrates a range of different methods available through its application. By seeing such a variety of different methods applied to one setting, it allows the opportunity for researchers to understand how tools can highlight various aspects of a building and how those different methods can augment, or complement each other. Unique to this book are contributions from internationally renowned academics from fields including architecture, ethnography, architectural criticism, phenomenology, sociology, environmental psychology and cognitive science, all of which are united by a single, real-world application, the Seattle Central Library. This book will be of interest to architects and students of architecture as well as disciplines such as ethnography, sociology, environmental psychology, and cognitive science that have an interest in applying research methods to the built environment.

Effective use of typography can produce a neutral effect or rouse the passions, symbolise artistic, political or philosophical movements, or express the personality of a person or organization. This book aims to impart a comprehensive understanding of typography, to explore its history, theory and practice. Aimed at both students and practising designers, it provides a thorough examination of how typography informs other aspects of creative design"-- Provided by publisher.

The catalog of the Aldo Manutiu exhibition, 500 years after his death, is a tribute to the most famous printer in the history of publishing. It tells how the book changed the world and how and why this change happened in Venice, cosmopolitan city and gateway between East and West. But it is mainly a journey through the world of culture and the arts in Venice between the end of the fifteenth century and the start of the sixteenth, in a crucial period featuring major figures like the painters Bellini, Carpaccio, and the young Giorgione (with the debut of his pupil Titian), illustrious visiting foreign artists like Albrecht Durer, and intellectuals of European fame such as Erasmus of Rotterdam.

This book is an investigation into the design and history of British magazines over the past 170 years. It identifies turning points and new directions in one of the most sensitive barometers of mass-market design taste, from the advent of two periodicals - Punch and the Illustrated London News - that changed publishing fundamentally, through to the beginnings of digital distribution. A magazine flourishes or folds according to its audience's response to its look and feel - sometimes more so than its written content - and this study of a developing history encompasses discussion of graphic design, typography, photography and innovative print technology. It explores why magazines have looked how they do. Published with full access to the National Art Library's unparalleled archive of periodicals, British Magazine Design is a definitive history.

9. The magazine [2016]

237 pages ; 21 cm.
The multiple platforms of the digital era have not diminished the role of the magazine for artists as an alternative medium and experimental space. Intrinsically collaborative, including readers' active engagement, the magazine is an inherently 'open' form which generates constantly evolving relationships. It was integral to the emergence of art criticism in the Enlightenment period and the development of artistic dialogues around notions of culture, politics and the public from the modern era avant-gardes to the present. This anthology contextualises the current condition and potential of the artist's magazine, surveying the art worlds it has by turns created and superseded. In addition to surveying case studies of transformational magazines from the early 1960s onwards, this collection includes a wide-ranging archive of key editorial statements, from eighteenth-century Weimar to twenty-first century Bangkok, Cape Town and Delhi.Artists surveyed include Can Altay, Ei Arakawa, Julieta Aranda, Tania Bruguera, Maurizio Cattelan, Eduardo Costa, Dexter Sinister, Rimma Gerlovina, Valeriy Gerlovin, Robert Heinecken, John Holmstrom, John Knight, Silvia Kolbowski, Lee Lozano, Josephine Meckseper, Clemente Padin, Raymond Pettibon, Adrian Piper, Seth Price, Raqs Media Collective, Riot Grrrl, Martha Rosler, Sanaa Seif, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Scott Treleaven, Triple Canopy and Anton Vidokle. Writers include Saul Anton, Stuart Brand, Jack Burnham, Johanna Burton, Thomas Crow, Edit DeAk, Kenneth Goldsmith, Jurgen Habermas, Martina Koppel-Yang, Antje Krause-Wahl, Lucy Lippard, Caolan Madden, Valentina Parisi, Howardena Pindell, Georg Schollhammer, Nancy Spector, Sally Stein, Reiko Tomii, Jud Yalkut and Vivian Ziherl.

Palatino is probably the most widely known and used of all Zapf faces. Trace its development, with all its infinite permutations, and often invisible refinements, through a long and fascinating history. Included is an eight page letterpress signature, printed in one color directly from handset foundry and Linotype hot metal.If you want background, it is all here, in encompassing detail: a fully illustrated account of Palatino and its extended family. But beyond that, the book is an argument, and a convincing one, that artists who create letters can, and should, be judged by the same standards and held in the same esteem as composers who write music and artists who paint on canvas.

Roaring Jackets: The finest German publishing 1919 1933 The years between the First and Second World Wars in Germany are famed for their cultural boom. With Berlin as its epicenter, the Weimar Republic was replete with ground-breaking literature, philosophy, and art. At the heart of thisintellectual and creative hubwere some of the mostoutstanding and forward-thinking book designs in history.Book Covers in the Weimar Republicassembles1,000 of the most striking examples from this golden age of publishing activity and innovation.Based on the remarkable collection of Jurgen Holstein and his rare collectibleBlickfang, it combines anunparalleled catalog of dust jackets and bindingswith Holstein s introduction to the leading figures and particular energy of the Weimar publishing age. Expert essays discuss the aesthetic and cultural context of theseprecious fourteen years, in which a freewheeling spirit would flourish, only to be trampled, burned, or driven out of the country with the rise of National Socialism.From children s books to novels in translation, bold designs for political literature to minimalist artist monographs, this is a dazzling line-up of typography, illustration, and graphic design at its most energetic and daring.Part reference compendium, part vintage visual feast for the eyes, this very particularcultural historyis at once a testament to an irretrievable period of promise and acelebration of the ambition, inventiveness, and beauty of the book. Text in English and German ".

775 pages : illustrations (some color) ; 24 cm
Drawn and Quarterly: 25 Years of Contemporary Cartooning, Comics, and Graphic Novels celebrates the storied transformation of the Montreal publisher whose veneration of the medium's best cartoonists has never wavered. In 1989, when the term graphic novel was not commonly heard in the comic shop or bookstore, Chris Oliveros created a comics magazine that took the industry by storm when early issues featured Peter Bagge, Julie Doucet, Carol Tyler, Jacques Tardi, and Seth. Armed with an unparalleled editorial aesthetic, design sense, and passion for its artists, D+Q gracefully grew from a one-man operation into a wildly influential boutique publisher. D+Q is renowned for an author-friendly ethos of high production standards, creative freedom and fair business practices, with a roster including Lynda Barry, Kate Beaton, Chester Brown, Daniel Clowes, Tove Jansson, Shigeru Mizuki, Art Spiegelman, Adrian Tomine, Chris Ware, and others from around the globe. Drawn and Quarterly: 25 Years is a celebration of the brilliant cartoonists whose talent and loyalty is the core of D+Q's success as a 21st-century independent publisher. The book digs into the archives and features comics, biographies, personal reminiscences, and photographs; new work by Michael DeForge, Guy Delisle, Miriam Katin, R. Sikoryak, Jillian Tamaki; essays by Margaret Atwood, Jonathan Lethem, Sheila Heti, Deb Olin Unferth; interviews by Jeet Heer and Sean Rogers.
