From the Publisher. Graphic designer, professor, historian, and author Philip Baxter Meggs (1942–2002) was born in 1942, Meggs began teaching in the Communication Arts and Design Department at Virginia Commonwealth University, chairing the department from 1974 to 1987. In 1983, he published his History of Graphic Design–the book that not only put graphic design in its historical context; it put graphic design on the cultural map.

Meggs: Making Graphic Design History is at once a retrospective of Philip Meggs’s achievements as a historian, educator, and artist in his own right, a deserved tribute to his lasting influence on the graphic arts, and a loving memoriam written by family, friends, and colleagues who were lucky enough to have known him.
