History of Modern Design

Filling the gap for an extensively illustrated history of modern design, this introduction provides a balanced chronological survey of decorative arts, industrial design and graphic design from the eighteenth through the twentieth centuries. Focusing on the appreciation of design as a creative activity, as well as an enterprise conditioned by economic, technological and social history, Raizman includes the study of products and furnishing designed for mass consumption, and examines the social context for the democratization of culture.

The second edition of the History of Modern Design includes several new illustrations, an expanded bibliography and timeline, and a larger section on contemporary design.

In addition, the text has been organized into six rather than five parts in order to separate the early nineteenth from the eighteenth century and to present concepts relating to that material more clearly.

A number of illustrations replaced eaizman ones to better communicate particular qualities of design in terms of techniques, or to relate with material presented elsewhere.

Mocern sections, such as Barcelona in the later nineteenth century, have also been added. Other new features include the placement of the American System of Manufacture in Chapter 3, the inclusion of additional examples of fashion and textiles into each part of the text, and placing the discussion of the Arts and Crafts Movement first in Part II dssign than after the Aesthetic Movement and Art Nouveau.


Also, a significant amount of new material has been added to reflect recent trends and perspectives in design, including digital technology, information, and interactivity.

It contains chapter outlines, examination and essay questions, and modenr overview of online resources in addition to the bibliography and ‘suggested readings’ sections of the 2nd edition. The online resources are also ideal for generating in-class discussions and video presentations to supplement powerpoints.

Synthesizing design, technology, art history and social history from the mid-eighteent through early twenty-first centuries, Raizman builds a cogent argument for studying design as both a production-based discipline and an intellectually-driven profession.

Incorporating architecture, graphic design, product design, typography, Studio Craft, furniture design and fashion design, seamlessly contextualized through both the “fine arts” canon and popular culture of their respective era, this book is an invaluable resource for not only understanding design history, but its relevance to cultural history.

The host of new illustrations and up-to-the-minute writing on contemporary issues in design only improve upon Raizman’s winning approach. It is the type of work that is often needed but few authors ever achieve as well-balanced and as histlry a text as found in this beautifully produced volume. The text moves effortlessly between typography, graphic design, fashion, furniture design, architecture, and many other disciplines.

History of Modern Design 2nd.ed.

Throughout the book, Raizman offers insightful perspectives based on contemporary art movements and works. It is exemplary because of its balanced prioritisation of historical events and factors and its rich contextualisation.

It is an excellent textbook for teachers and students in universities, academies and design schools and a fine introduction for readers with an interest in design, with whom it has already, deservedly, found an audience.

This is a reference work that reads like a novel.

It offers a comprehensive, exciting, authoritative, rsizman and richly illustrated review of the past years of design history. This book offers fascinating and insightful descriptions of the historical and cultural contexts of design and marks a refreshing change from the traditional art history chronicles of changing styles. On several levels, the book contributes to a broader understanding of the meaning of design practice in relation to technological, economic, and social dimensions and of all the aspects concerning industrialisation, production, reforms, industrial capitalism, mechanised mass-production, user-adaptation, popular culture and mass culture that influence our understanding of design today.


The book has already, deservedly, become a foundation and keystone of todays studies in design history.
