Book Description :

To an outsider, the world of ham radio is one of basement transmitters, clunky microphones, Morse code, and crackly, possibly clandestine, worldwide communications, a world both mysterious and geeky. But the real story is a lot more interesting: indeed, there are more than two million operators worldwide, including people like Walter Cronkite and Priscilla Presley. Gandhi had a ham radio, as do Marlon Brando and Juan Carlos, king of Spain. Hello World takes us on a seventy-year odyssey through the world of ham radio. From 1927 until his death in 2001, operator Jerry Powell transmitted radio signals from his bedroom in Hackensack, New Jersey, touring the worlds most remote locations and communicating with people from Greenland to occupied Japan. Once he made contact with a fellow ham operator, he exchanged postcards known as QSLs cards with them. For seven decades, Powell collected hundreds of these cards, documenting his fascinating career in amateur radio and providing a dazzling graphic inventory of people and places far flung. This book is both an introduction to the fascinating world of ham and a visual feast for anyone interested in the universal language of graphic design.

Insightful text exploring mentors, education, and eureka moments complement this visual timeline illustrating the journey from struggling novice to master designer. In addition to the twenty-five giants, Bucher also profiles twenty of the most exciting upcoming design stars from around the globe. As with the masters, Bucher explores their road to early success, and showcases the work that is currently lifting these young designers into the spotlight.

Rant
  • Author : Rudy VanderLans
  • Publisher : Princeton Architectural Press
  • Release : 2003
  • ISBN : 9781568984094
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

For almost twenty years, and over sixty issues, Emigre has been a sourcebook of ideas, fonts, images, work, products, and even music for an entire generation of designers. But this visual stimulation may have come at a price: are today's young designers writing passionately enough about what they do? Acting as agent provocateur in Rant, Emigre invites designers, teachers, and critics including Jeffery Keedy, Rick Valicenti, Shawn Wolfe, Kenneth FitzGerald, Denise Gonzales Crisp, Andrew Blauvelt, and Elliott Earls to challenge today's young designers to develop a critical attitude toward their own work and the design scene in general. Rant also signals a transition in the format of Emigre, away from its previous incarnation as a magazine/font catalog toward a series of "pocketbooks" focusing on critical writing about the state of graphic design.

  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

We all know we're not supposed to judge books by their covers, but the truth is that we do just that nearly every time we walk into a bookstore or pull a book off a tightly packed shelf. It's really not something we should be ashamed about, for it reinforces something we sincerely believe: design matters. At its best, book cover design is an art that transcends the publisher's commercial imperativesto reflect both an author's ideas and contemporary cultural values in a vital, intelligent, and beautiful way. In this groundbreaking and lavishly illustrated history, authors Ned Drew and Paul Sternberger establish American book cover design as a tradition of sophisticated, visual excellence that has put shape to our literary landscape. By Its Cover traces the story of the American book cover from its inception as a means of utilitarian protection for the book to its current status as an elaborately produced form of communication art. It is, at once, the intertwined story of American graphic design and American literature, and features the work of such legendary figures as Rockwell Kent, E. McKnight Kauffer, Paul Rand, Alvin Lustig, Rudy deHarak, and Roy Kuhlman along with more recent and contemporary innovators including Push Pin Studios, Chermayeff & Geismar, Karen Goldberg, Chip Kidd, and John Gall.
