Abstract

Reading Graphic Design:
• Is a much needed textbook on graphic design and illustration in a wide open field; the competing titles are dominated by anthologies and books in need of renewal
• Forms an introduction to writing critically about graphic design and illustration through twelve chapters providing exemplary analyses of the semantic richness of the selected case studies
• Goes beyond aesthetic judgments to explore how graphic design and illustration function in Western consumer cultures
• Will inform, challenge and entertain undergraduate students of graphic design in the UK, Europe, the US, Central and South American, Australia and East Asia.
