Collecting Graphic Design
Modern graphic design has existed for more than a hundred years. In an exciting history of evolution, the discipline has evolved and established itself worldwide. The fact that we can trace this development in detail today is largely thanks to archives and collections that preserve posters, logos, book covers, design manuals, and small printed matter. The natural short-lived nature of many of these media, the ever-changing visual zeitgeist, and the fact that graphic design is always a reflection of contemporary history make its history incredibly appealing.
