Edward Bawden (1903-1989) was one of twentieth century Britain’s most innovative graphic designers. Book illustrator, wallpaper, textile and poster designer, watercolourist, mural painter, teacher. His designs still resonate strongly with young designers more than a quarter-of-a-century after his death.
Bawden’s influence on 20th-century design is beyond measure. Edward Bawden: Design is the newest title in ACC’s award-winning Design series and an excellent introduction to the work of Edward Bawden. This fascinating book illustrates every aspect of his creativity, and is beautifully illustrated throughout.
