THERE HAS NOT BEEN A BOOK of this scope about graphic design and graphic design issues, as they apply to today’s newspapers, for over a decade. Through in-depth, highly visual essays on the graphic evolution of some of the world? most famous newspapers, this carefully compiled survey examines how both technology and design have radically reshaped the look of the news over the last fifteen years, and continue to do so. This book reviews structure, layout, use of illustrations, and typography, and will be of interest to all those involved in graphic design, newspaper design, and journalism.
