Körper, Flächen... / picture dictionary

Körper, Flächen...

Any discipline has its own terminology provided in specialized dictionaries. In Design there is no comprehensive encyclopedia so far and the very few examples are limited to a small number of terms. This book is a German-language dictionary on basic elements of designing and their characteristics. It contains more than 1.200 headwords in alphabetical order and 900 illustrations visually grouped in thematic sections. Each keyword is specified by definitions of different meanings basing on a specific vocabulary and offers shortcuts to related illustrations. As language bases on tradition, the visual concept refers to old printing techniques.
