Inhaltsangabe: Jaroslav Andel’s Avant-Garde Page Design 1900–1950 demonstrates the indebtedness of today’s visual aesthetic to the experimental page design of the historical avant-garde. The book presents a richly illustrated survey of groundbreaking work created by avant-garde artists and page designers during the early part of the 20th century. It shows how page design emerged as highly sophisticated form of art in its own right, and directly or indirectly, prefigured the communication revolution we are undergoing today.
With images by more 250 individual artists, the book chronicles the history of modern page design and presents vivid examples drawn from the major movements of the era: Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Dadaism, Constructivism, and Surrealism. Illustrations include designs by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Wassily Kandinsky, Marcel Duchamp, Alekandr Rodchenko, Lázló Moholy-Nagy, El Lissitzky, Jan Tschichold—as well as the lesser-known figures whose efforts shaped the printed page as we know it today.
Vom Verlag: With networked computers gradually replacing printed pages as the primary carriers of information, we are witnessing a full-scale transition in the way we communicate. In order to more fully understand the cultural significance of this technological revolution, artists, designers, and scholars are beginning to re-examine the history of printed material. Andel’s scholarship shows how even the earliest experimenters coined innovations that remain powerful conventions of page design today, and how some, such as El Lissitzky, actually predicted the rise of electronic media.
