Dutch moderne : graphic design from De Stijl to deco by Steven Heller( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dutch Moderne examines a little-charted genre of Dutch graphic design during the 20's and 30's. The stylistic movements of the period - from De Stijl to art deco - played a vital role in bringing the concepts of the modern movement into the commercial world." "A synthesis of cubist and ancient Egyptian and Mayan forms, art deco quickly spread throughout post-World War I France, Germany, England, Italy, and Eastern Europe before appearing in Holland. And yet despite its comparatively late start, Dutch designers enthusiastically embraced the style for its contemporary feel, elegance, and streamlined aesthetic as an alternative to staid traditional and outrageous revolutionary graphic approaches. The style influenced virtually all forms of Dutch commercial art, from magazines, newspapers, and posters to trademarks and advertisements." "Dutch Moderne features over 500 of these designs, many of which have never before been published in the United States, by scores of designers both renowned and anonymous. These unearthed artifacts of Dutch commercial design reveal the rich legacy of an indigenous style. This book is an essential resource for graphic designers, students of design, and pop culture history aficionados alike."--Jacket

Deco españa : graphic design of the twenties and thirties by Steven Heller( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in Spanish and English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vibrant and emotional, Spanish Art Deco brings a unique twist to the style of this era. Neither classically refined like French Deco, nor streamlined like American, Spanish Deco shows the influences of its own distinctive culture. Here was a highly industrialized country on the cusp of the advertising age, bringing to commercial design its own sense of style and of the avant-garde. It was also a country in the throes of social strife, and Deco Espana reveals the power of graphic design used for political as well as commercial purposes - notably in the posters created in the tumultuous days of the Spanish Civil War, many of which are reproduced here for the first time."--Jacket
