history of design coverReady to take a deep dive into the history of decorative arts and design? Treat yourself to History of Design, new from Yale University Press. The doorstop of a volume spans six centuries of design (1400-2000) across Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Indian subcontinent, and the Islamic world. In addition to the usual suspects–interiors, furniture, textiles, product design–the book tackles graphics, exhibitions, landscape design, even theater and film design. It’s an essential addition to any design library.
