Photo Graphics

Poster Collection 17

The effective interplay of photography, graphic arts, and typography marks the beginning of modern graphic design. This volume illuminates eight selected approaches that both engage with tradition and consciously distinguish themselves from it in order to achieve fruitful reinterpretations. The focus is on graphic artists that consciously use photography and type as their means of expression. Tension-filled mixtures of images and text express contemporary trends.
