The Museum of Modern Art Design Encyclopedia is the most comprehensive design reference guide to date. Compiled over the last 15 years by Mel Byars, in consultation with an international team of design experts, The Encyclopedia sets out to provide the factual framework of a discipline whose own historical accounting of itself is still relatively young. (By way of contrast, art history has existed as a scholarly discipline for over two centuries, and has produced a fairly comprehensive record of itself in that time period.) Only once before has a similarly comprehensive overview of the history of design been attempted--in 1994, also by Mel Byars. The Encyclopedia is about design, of course, but these days “design” seems to encompass almost everything, from magazine layouts and sweatshirts to animatronic flower gardens and heart pumps, not to mention the more abstract “information design.” Here, however, design is considered only in its concrete application to functional objects, thus crossing with craft, decorative arts, and industrial design, but distinguishing itself from fine art and theory. The result is 832 pages covering the last 130 years in the history of the design of furniture, lighting, fabrics, ceramics, glassware, metalware, objects in a range of other materials, and mechanical, electrical and electronic appliances, as well as automobiles and some inventions. There are separate entries for designers and craftspeople, design studios, consortiums and partnerships, noteworthy manufacturers, significant historical periods and styles, and materials. Entries, 3,600 in all, are self-contained and organized alphabetically, and include cross-references. Information is an amalgamation of data gathered from a vast number of primary and secondary sources. With over 700 full-color illustrations, most of which are drawn from the MoMA collection, the remainder from Quittenbaum Kunstauktionen in Munich and Hamburg or directly from designers or manufacturers, this publication is an invaluable, definitive compendium of the world of design over the last century and a half.

Best dictionary on design since the late 19th century. The author is called a modern-day Diderot by MoMA departmental curator in his Introduction.

Fast shipping and good protection.

Had to return it. Recipient had one already and I couldn't give it to another since the book has been updated since the copyright of this edition

When I first received this, I fanned through it and was disappointed. I was expecting to see huge glossy photographs of fantastic works of art and all I could see was a whole lot of text. I set it aside. Later, I opened it again and this time I went through it more slowly. I was wrong. The images are smaller than I had anticipated but the book is filled with them and the text is informative. It's a great, good quality, well presented reference book. I'm glad to have it on my bookshelf.

I used to go to the seasonal Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Modern sales at Sotheby's and Christies in the 1980's. I have been to design schools as well. My title says it all, it's a darn good reference book if you are studying up on different designers. Go to a library or book store and browse through it if you are unsure you can afford it, before you can plunk the money down to have it.

Keep on designing. Carry on.

Bottom line; This is a good reference if you need to look up a particular designer.

This is a marvellous work of reference: there is a large number of well-illustrated entries on individuals and institutions that have played an important part in 'design' (applied arts, and architecture and other arts when in a close relationship to the applied arts) for the past one and a half century. If this kind of thing interests you, this encyclopedia is a must. But it is also a pleasure to browse, and find out that those chairs and lampshades and I don't know what that you have seen so often and taken for granted are the product of some individual's creativity. This book can open your eyes to the wealth of design that is not only in museums but everywhere around you.

A top notch guide to the world of design.
