Our titles cover subjects such as graphic design, theater, branding, fine art, photography, interior design, writing, acting, film, how to start careers, business and legal forms, business practices, and more. While we don't aspire to publish a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are deeply committed to quality books that help creative professionals succeed and thrive. We often publish in areas overlooked by other publishers and welcome the author whose expertise can help our audience of readers.

In this groundbreaking anthology, nearly 30 legendary writers explore and characterize the unique developments, notable people, and memorable events that shaped the world of graphic design. Taken in many cases from hard-to-find sources, these essays provide a unique scope and array of provocative viewpoints that are not found anywhere else. Readers will be taken on a fascinating journey through the trends that shaped the industry for the past 100-plus years, written by the people who helped define it.

Heller, a senior art director at the New York Times , argues in his introduction that familiarity with the roots of design is necessary to avoid reinvention and that "although graphic design history is routinely inserted as an afterthought or foot note in some histories of art and culture, it is a significant component of mass communication, from producing advertising to defining zeitgeist." He and co-editor Ballance (Cooper Union; the U. of Miami) have collected essays, originally published in a variety of design periodicals, into a reader providing insight into particular works while establishing the works' significance in the larger world of design and cultural environment.
