I ended up researching some graphic design books online as well as the books that the library had to offer. The main things I find very interesting about graphic design books are that they are actually fun to look at. I don’t like reading a whole lot of tiny type and long paragraphs, stuff like that. When I was looking at Graphic Design: A New History by Stephen Eskilson I found it very interesting how typography and graphic design has changed over hundreds of years.. It started off showing documents from the 19th century. Beautifully constructed with handwritten fonts and detailed bordering. It continued to how our number charts developed, kinda like the ones we see at the eye doctors office. I continued to view paintings, illustrations and posters from all sorts of time periods. The new age of graphic design is upon us. We will be the people who create and understand it. Image
