For the third edition of Graphic Design Stephen Eskilson has, with the aid of over 500 new and existing images, updated key parts of the book. Most notably he has expanded the introduction to begin with the origins of writing and added a new chapter 11 that investigates current trends in digital design.
Organised chronologically, the book traces the impact of politics, economics, war, nationalism, colonialism, gender and art on graphic designers working in print and film and with the latest web, multimedia and emerging digital technologies.
