This unparalleled and wide-ranging book surveys the history of applied arts and industrial design from the eighteenth century to the present day, exploring the dynamic relationship between design and manufacturing, and the technological, social and commercial contexts in which this relationship has developed.
In this extensively revised and expanded third edition, David Raizman addresses international questions more fully with the addition of six Global Inspiration sections that examine the contributions of non-Western traditions, rendering the very notion of a 'national' design debatable. The text also pays closer attention to issues of gender, race, and climate change, and their impact on design.
With over 580 illustrations, mostly in colour, History of Modern Design is an inclusive, well-balanced introduction to a field of increasing scholarly and interdisciplinary research, and provides students in design with historical perspectives of their chosen fields of study.
David Raizman is Professor in the Art and Art History Department in the Westphal College of Media Arts & Design at Drexel University in Philadelphia. He co-edited, with Professor Carma Gorman, Objects, Audiences, and Literatures: Alternative Narratives in the History of Design (2007), and has been a research fellow at the Wolfsonian-Florida International University museum in Miami Beach, Florida.
