Book Description

Oct. 1 2003
With input from a diverse range of industry experts/designers, theorists, critics, historians, and curators, this anthology is the first to focus exclusively on the history of industrial design. This pioneering guide traces the entire history of industrial design, industrialization, and mass production from 1850 until today. Sixty comprehensive essays written by designers, theorists, advertisers, historians, and curators detail the most crucial movements, issues, and accomplishments of industrial design. They combine news reports on the very first design workshops, aesthetic manifestos, lectures, and more from the biggest names in the field: William Morris, Henry Dreyfuss, and Victor Papanek, to name only a few. The Industrial Design Reader is an excellent resource for educators, students, and practicing designers. • Features design from not only theoretical and aesthetic perspectives, but also from a socio-political point of view, with texts from Karl Marx, Ralph Nader, and others • Copublished with the Design Management Institute, which will actively promote the book to its membership

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected Home-run Dec 3 2012
By Broomfield Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book surprised me. Not only does it give you a glimpse at what designers have debated since the dawn of time, it also gives a very interesting view of how politics, design and manufacturing are so closely tied and how views have evolved over time. I love this book.

There's nothing better than reading the canonical writings of some of the most brilliant minds in design. Gorman has successfully curated a collection which is both informative and relevant; all this despite the age of some of the writings.

It was a cheap alternative to buying the actual book and it is easy to read on the Kindle app on my Mac and my Asus Tablet. I could also read this on both of my computers with all the highlights and what not. It is simply wonderful.
