  • Dilkree
If you are interested in graphic design and more specifically in its history, this book is (still) the bible. I teach History of Graphic Design to postgrad students and Meggs' book is the basis of my course I know for a fact that this is also true for most of my colleagues. This book initiated the tradition that graphic design history should start with the invention of writing and a history of typography. Only the second part deals with "real" graphic design (after 1900). Nevertheless, one should keep in mind that this book was written from an American/English point of view. I would recommend you supplement this great book with books dealing specifically with French, German or Russian graphic design. Not that Meggs fails to deal with these subjects, but other authors might make you get a more balanced, more European picture.

I needed this for a class, so I didn't have a choice to buy this or not. This was not for leisure reading.
However, I will definitely not be selling this to another student! I like the way everything is written; it's very down to earth and easy to understand. If you're looking for a specific person or time period, it's very easy to locate that. This is the first history book I've found that made sense when divided into chapters; everything else I've read (for school or leisure) was disorganized and confusing. I'll be keeping this for future reference.
There are a lot of pictures of the artifacts they are talking about, and lots of good information.
The book came in excellent condition with no bends, rips, or fraying. The cover is actually a dust jacket, the actual book is white.

Yeah, the digital copy of Meggs' History of Graphic Design might save you a few bucks. But honestly if you can get a hold of the book, do it. There was a conscious decision made to remove the images from the text; they are linked within it and you can scroll through them separately, you cannot immediately see any of the images as they are being written about and navigating back and forth is a pain. Overall it was poorly organized and every student in my class who bought this edition agreed that taking the images out of the text was confusing and impeded both speed of reading and memorizing the images.

Huge book. I rented it, so I was not able to use the code in the back to get access to more digital content. I kind of wish I had bought it so I didn't have to worry so much about highlighting and had access to digital content. Ton of information, most of it really good stuff but sometimes it really felt like the writers were gushing about the artists/designers and not being completely objective. At times, the writing is also very vague about why exactly something or someone was significant.
  • Kearanny
It was meh. Still waiting for a comprehensive and complex history of design book to hit the market. We used this as a textbook for a class at a very smart institution and almost everyone found the readings very scattered and shallow. Trash..
  • Hulis
In my opinion, this 3rd Edition "A History of GD" is the best reference book written about graphic design. This 500 plus pages book/bible is simply divided into 5 sections, 1) The Prologue to Graphic Design, 2) A Graphic Rennaissance, 3) The Industrial Revolution, 4)The Modernist Era, and 5) The Age of Information. The topics range from the invention of writing to, creation of new typogrphic styles to, the digital revolution and computer art. There are plenty of graphics and photos on every page to accompany the wonderfully written text. If you study art history or graphic design, I think this would be a great reference book to have. It will take some time to read the entire book. But this is like a text book, so, reading only part of the chapters would be quite informative as well. Once you are done, you will definitely appreciate graphic design/graphic designers.
Amazing book! Coming from VCUarts, I can honestly say this book is considered the bible there.. and for good reason. Philip Meggs received a masters at VCUarts and went on to teach there. This book does such a great job of outlining everything you need to know not only as a design student, but also as a professional in the design world. You will use it long after your school days are over.. guaranteed.
