This weighty compendium, published in 1989, details the founding and early history of the Alliance Graphique Internationale, a professional organization dedicated to supporting and disseminating the highest standards of graphic design. For anyone fascinated by the practice’s international history during the crucial formative years from the 1950s to the 1980s, this book is an indispensable resource. Henrion’s pages are crammed to the bursting point with inside information, documentary photos of meetings and events, and early examples of work by designers less well known today that can be hard to find elsewhere.
