With its engaging design, humorous narratives, and fun-filled exercises, it offers an entertaining look at the many aspects of graphic design—from typography’s humble beginnings to the internet-based font distribution of today; from styles including art nouveau, Dada, Bauhaus, and psychedelic to innovators such as William Morris, Jan Tschichold, Saul Bass, and David Carson.
