    20th century Poised at the start of the 21st century, we can see clearly that the previous century was marked by momentous changes in the field of design. Aesthetics entered into everyday life with often staggering results.   This one, design of the 20th century, is a nice visual overview of some of the high points of industrial, commercial, and consumer design. I'm not an expert on design, and a thicker book would be less interesting to me on this by:

      Responding to the major society shifts, aftermaths of wars, and technological innovations, 20th century design movements were defined by upheavals. Art, design, theater and performances were all affected by the changes happening in the world. Painters, sculptors, and designers used their skills to document such events and to implement new aesthetic ideas .   The 20th Century Art Book was hailed upon its release as an exciting celebration of the myriad forms assumed by art over the last century. Complementing the phenomenally successful Art Book, and most recently The American Art Book, it presents a new and original way of bringing art alive. Covering the truly international nature of the modern art scene, it 5/5(2).

      This essential book is a comprehensive journey through the shapes and colors, forms and functions of design history in the 20th century. An A–Z of designers and design schools, which builds into a complete picture of contemporary living. Lavishly illustrated, this is design in the fullest sense/5(85). This one, design of the 20th century, is a nice visual overview of some of the high points of industrial, commercial, and consumer design. I'm not an expert on design, and a thicker book would be less interesting to me on this topic/5(4).
