Printed brochures, catalogues and ‘multi-page’ documents form the bedrock of many graphic designers’ daily practice. Most printed literature is disposable: today’s hot communication document is tomorrow’s landfill. But the best brochures, catalogues and documents have a permanence and organic completeness that has become important in the ephemeral, and increasingly electronic, world of instant communications.

This book features the best of contemporary printed literature. It offers a critical survey of current graphic design, showing work by leading practitioners from the USA, Europe and Japan. Arranged in a designer-by-designer format and accompanied by interviews with some of the designers responsible for the featured work, this book offers a complete and informative picture of this popular subject.
