About: Since it was first published in 1969, 'Pioneers of modern typography' has served as the standard guide to the impact of twentieth century avant-garde movements on graphic design and typography. Herbert Spencer's substantial introduction examines the origins and artefacts of the revolution in graphic design and carefully disentangles the respective influences of Futurism, Dadaism, De Stijl, Suprematism, Constructivism, and the Bauhaus. Spencer traces the interactions of the key personalities associated with these movements and presents concise biographical sketches of them.
