A Dictionary of Modern Design Summary


A Dictionary of Modern Design by Jonathan M. Woodham

From Jacobsen to Tupperware, this fascinating new dictionary of "Modern Design" covers the period from the mid-nineteenth century to the end of the twentieth. Both wide-ranging and comprehensive, it covers commercial design mass manufacture, as well as high art terms and aesthetic movements. Over 2,000 entries on names and movements from the past 150 years of design include ceramics, furniture, graphics, industrial design, interiors, and fashion, major museums and heritage sites, as well as biographical entries on designers and manufacturers. The dictionary, international in focus, also covers key design concepts, design terminology, and important design institutions. Other features include timelines of key design events and movements, and an index of author names for easy reference. It also features funky illustrations at every letter's opening page, with zeitgeist design concepts from Action Man and Barbie to Ferrari and Electrolux. Written in a clear, accessible style, and with more comprehensive coverage than any of the other design dictionaries available, "The Dictionary of Modern Design" is an essential reference tool for students, and a useful addition to every designer's and artist's studio shelf.
