Richard Doubleday Contributes to Phaidon Archive of Graphic Design

Assistant Professor of Graphic Design Richard B. Doubleday is one of the contributors to the recently released Phaidon Archive of Graphic Design, a “book in a box” that features 500 graphic designs including newspapers, magazines, posters, advertisements, typefaces, logos, corporate design, record covers and moving graphics from around the world.

Compiled and researched by experts, and illustrated with up to six images per entry, including rarely seen historical and contextual material, The Phaidon Archive of Graphic Design is a reference guide for the design professional and enthusiast.

Graphic designs created since the advent of mechanical reproduction, are showcased in this archive – from the Gutenberg Bible and Nuremberg Chronicles of the fifteenth century, to cutting edge magazines and posters of today.

Professor Doubleday worked on many sections of the book. A few examples are the following writings within the history of graphic design: Othello posters and Fischer Verlag Publishers poster series by Gunter Rambow; Phoebus Palace poster series, Konstruktivisten exhibition poster, elementary typography, and Die neue Typographie by Jan Tschichold; The quarterly British journal Typography by Robert Harling; the history of Baseline magazine published by Hans Dieter Reichert; and The Road to Basel by Helmut Schmid.

The book is featured in a YouTube video:
