About: Revised edition of the famed "Pioneers of Modern Typography" first edition, produced by Herbert Spencer (editor of Typographica) in 1969. Foreword by Rick Poynor... "Herbert Spencer's text examines what led up to the new concepts in graphic design and carefully disentangles the respective influences of Futurism, Dadaism, de Stijl, Suprematism, Constructivism and the Bauhaus. His text is illustrated with examples of crucial contributions to the new typography - from Apollinaire to Zwart - and the book's documentation includes biographical notes on the key figures".
