Treasures of the Rare Books Room: The Phaidon Archive of Graphic Design


The Phaidon Archive of Graphic Design is a large box of 500 cards, or unbound pages, that the user can organize and reorganize according to their needs. Light green dividers with subject headings are included if need be. The pages include designs from the 1400s through 2012 and from all around the world. Each of the cards, front and back, are in full color and contain as much authoritative information as is available.


Everyone will find something of interest in this nontraditional book as it covers everything from newspapers, books, symbols, advertisements, record and CD covers, magazines, posters and more. As time passes Phaidon plans to distribute more cards to add to this amazing collection.

This item is not available to check out. To view this item, please call the Central Library Art, Music and Recreation Department at 414-286-3071 to arrange a visit.
