Brussels (Belgium) - Masters of the 20th Century: The Icograda Design Hall of Fame is an inspiring survey of the work of more than 100 leading international graphic designers who spoke at a unique series of Icograda London Design Seminars between 1974 and 1999. Every year for a quarter of a century, these seminars attracted around 1,000 students, teachers and practising designers to learn at the knee of the great names of 20th century graphic design.

Editor Mervyn Kurlansky, himself a distinguished Icograda contributor, has assembled the work of these masters of modern communication in one stunning visual compendium. The selection of work is prefaced by design critic Steven Heller's survey of the design practice on show and by Marion Wesel-Henrion's history of the Icograda seminars themselves. For everyone who ever studied, taught, practised or commissioned graphic design, this new book is an essential volume of images and ideas which is as much a standard-bearer for the future as it is a record of the past.

This handsome 360-page hardcover book designed by Mervyn Kurlansky is published by Graphis Inc., and is printed on Sappi paper supplied by Sappi Fine Paper Europe. The book comes with an information-rich interactive CD-ROM, allowing the viewer various ways to navigate through the collected works of more than 100 distinguished designers. Look for the book in better bookstores everywhere, or visit: www.graphis.com/bks.
