From the work of the avant garde to the monumental achievements of traditional designers in The Netherlands, the period from the end of World War I to the end of World War II comprises one of the most exciting eras in graphic design history. TheseMoreFrom the work of the avant garde to the monumental achievements of traditional designers in The Netherlands, the period from the end of World War I to the end of World War II comprises one of the most exciting eras in graphic design history.

These designers and their individual and collective accomplishments represent a unique phenomenon, both in quality and complexity. Their work has become the source of much of our own present graphic design language. Beautifully illustrated with more than 80 color and 220 black-and-white illustrations, this book provides the first comprehensive record of this era that brought De Stijl and new typography to the forefront of the graphic arts world.

Readers will get a close-hand look at the work of individual designers such as Van Doesburg, Werkman, Zwart, and Schuitema and at their relevance to the rest of the design world. The influences of Dadaism, Futurism, and Constructivism are also explored. Included is the first thorough bibliography of Dutch graphic design. This extensive study of an intensely rich and diverse era is an important reference for designers who are interested in the formative years of their profession. Dutch Graphic Design: 1918-1945 will provide insight and inspiration for graphic design and advertising professionals, art historians, students, and anyone interested or involved in graphic communications.
