Graphic Design: History in the Writing (1983–2011) comprises some of the most influential published texts about graphic design history. The book documents the development of the relatively young field of graphic design history from 1983 to today, underscoring the aesthetic, theoretical, political and social tensions that have underpinned it from the beginning. Included in the anthology are texts by Ellen Lupton, Robin Kinross, Massimo Vignelli, Steven Heller, Victor Margolin and many others.
