The Visual Dictionary of Graphic Design

This is a short and very synthetic index of contents related to graphic design. It covers not only the technical stuff, like typography, color groups, printing processes, CMYK, etc, but also gives brief introductions to artistic movements and external concepts that became a common ground in the work of graphic designers or designers in general.
It features one content per page, always illustrated with a graphic example and a brief text.

It is very minimalist, and some stuff is poorly explained or lacks some background details, but anyone starting on this area or just seeking for basic notions will be satisfied with the book.

I finished this book just in time for my attendance to a Graphic Production workshop with Conceição Barbosa, whose book I also read two years ago, and not only I’d suggest her future workshops, but her book is definitely an important reading for anyone seeking to develop work that will go into a serious production.
I dare to say that after reading Visual Dictionary of Graphic Design and Conceição’s book, anyone would be ready to talk business with any graphic designer or printing facility.
