Design of dissent by Milton Glaser( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dissent is an essential part of keeping democratic societies healthy; for citizens to voice our opinion is not only our privilege but our responsibility. Without this dialogue, the backbone of what we have fought so desperately for could easily crumble. Over the past decades, the number of democratic societies has increased around the globe, and there is a heightened awareness of increasing conflicts and problems that affect our everyday lives. With the Middle East conflict, the war on terrorism, and financial and environmental crises, people's sense of safety, power, and representation has diminished in part because they feel they have no voice. Designers, however, use their skills to communicate their dissent, even more so now with the World Wide Web and the increasing ease of distributing posters and other printed materials. This book examines graphic work focusing on social and political concerns from around the globe.--From publisher description

When they burned the White House by Andrew Tully( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At 9:45 p.m. on August 24, 1814, the British set fire to the White House and, within an hour, the Capitol had been gutted. How could this happen? The war was not widely supported and the defense of Washington had been placed in the hands of two inept and ill-appointed leaders{u2015}Secretary of War Armstrong and Brigadier General Winder{u2015}whose?thimble headed stupidity? meant that the arriving British troops met little resistance. There were heroes in the mix: the U.S. First Lady, Dolley Madison, stayed until the last moment and, with the help of her servants, managed to save important books, a portrait of George Washington, and a copy of the Declaration of Independence. Ironically, the burning of the White House had a galvanizing effect on the divided views of the young country.?Overnight, the nation united in its determination to pursue this unpopular war with new vigor, to take its revenge on a power which had shamed an independent people by burning its capital.? President Madison had, at last, the support he needed. Award winning author and newspaperman, Andrew Tully, has added flesh to the bones of this true story of an often over-looked and confusing period of U.S. history. Well-researched and historically accurate, When They Burned the White House is a fascinating read for U.S. history buffs eager for more information about the War of 1812 and all readers interested in historical drama. Illustrated throughout by celebrated graphic designer Milton Glaser.?Well told{u2026}attractive{u2026}lively????????Allen Drury, author of Advise and Content and A Shade of Difference

Graphic Design, perhaps the most famous book of its kind, explores the extraordinary achievement of America's pre-eminent graphic artist. Here Glaser undertakes not only a remarkably wide- ranging representation of his oeuvre but, in a personally revealing introduction, speaks of the influences on his work, the responsibilities of the artist, the hierarchies of the traditional art world, and the role of graphic design in the area of his creative growth. His work ranges from posters to book and record covers; from store and restaurant design to toy creations, magazine formats, and logotypes all of which define the look of our time
