About the Author :


Jonathan Woodham is Professor of the History of Design and Director of the Design History Research Center at the University of Brighton. He is the author of Twentieth Century Design (OUP, 1997).

From Booklist :

Sometimes a book's cover, or in this case, the book jacket, is an indication of what is between the boards. The stylish use of the ISBN number and large colorful bar code are emblematic of good modern design. As well as being a dictionary of modern design, this book is also a concise history. It is filled with biographies of individuals, such as Laura Ashley, Charles Eames, and Robert Venturi, as well as entries for styles (Art deco, Danish modern); materials (Bakelite, Chrome, Formica); companies (IKEA, Tupperware, Prada); and more. Each alphabet letter section, from A through XYZ, is introduced by a classic example of modern design. For example, F is illustrated with a photograph of Fiskars scissors; N with a Nokia mobile phone; R with a Rubik's Cube. There are no other illustrations.

More than 2,000 entries cover world design from the middle of the nineteenth century through 2004. Occasional boxed entries discuss important concepts such as Arts and Crafts movement, Green design, Kitsch, and Modernism. If an entry heading is mentioned within the text of another entry, it is preceded by an asterisk. The dictionary portion of the volume is followed by a topically organized bibliography, time lines, and an index of names.

A wealth of information in a well-designed book makes this a required purchase for libraries supporting design programs and for most academic libraries and large public libraries. Linda Loos Scarth
