[128 pages]. 90 illustrations, including 67 full-page lithographic plates (12 in full colour). 315 x 240mm (12½ x 9½"). 1.1kg. . English. Very good, in very good dust jacket; light shelf wear to jacket with some rubbing to edges, small 1cm tear to top edge of rear panel, light ruffling at spine ends, some discolouration to jacket, price-clipped; no inscriptions, some dustiness to edges, some rusting to spiral binding with subsequent offsetting to verso of jacket; a rare survival with the dust jacket.
A 1930s manual for learning the fundamentals of graphic design, with the scarce dust jacket. You Can Design is intended to teach design to everyone, regardless of their previous artistic experience. Exercises such as Forms from Birds, Border of Flower Forms and Allover Repeat Patterns are taught using striking graphic lithographs, several in colour. A beautiful example of 1930s book production and graphic design.
