“Visionary” is a lofty title to bestow on anyone, yet it suits the design greats in this collection by journalist and author Caroline Roberts, editor of Grafik magazine. Beginning with the architectural typography of Swiss designer Piet Zwart and closing with inventive letterforms from M/M Paris, Roberts includes influential prints, posters, logos, and book and album covers from 75 designers and design firms from around the globe. The designers’ portraits and a timeline of the years they were employed—and occasionally fired—vitalize the major achievements of their notable careers. Kudos to TwoSheds Design for the book’s elegant layout, which helps readers navigate a century of remarkable work. —Ruth Hagopian
