Over 950 entries From the Arts and Crafts Movement to Postmodernism, Apple to Frank Lloyd Wright, this fascinating dictionary covers the past 160 years of international design, with accessible entries on branding, graphics, industrial design, functionalism, and fashion. New entries on digital design and sustainable design bring the coverage up to date. The dictionary's international focus takes in major movements, key concepts, design terminology, and important design institutions, museums, and heritage sites. The new edition reflects the growing global importance of design, with coverage of India, China, the countries of the Pacific Rim, Eastern Europe and East Asia, and demonstrates how developments in the design of technology influence everyday life, with new entries on fonts, games developers such as Gunpei Yokoi of Nintendo, Android, Samsung, and Blackberry, and a fully revised entry on Apple. The A-Z entries are complemented by an extensive bibliography and a timeline.
