A Concise History of Graphic Design by Richard Hollis, Also A Load Of Bull: an englishman’s adventures in spain by Tim Parfitt – Condé Nast

A concise history of graphic design



Russian born Mehemed Fehmy Agha directed the use of the first full-colour photo vogue used was in 1932, a trend which has been religously adherd to ever since.


Agha who was a Conde Nast art director in the 1930s who pioneered magazine design, making series of double page spreads apposed to a sequence of individual pages

Agha left Conde Nast Publications in 1943, after Nast died in 1942, and became a successful freelance consultant.

when looking at magazine design, this book gave me some inspiration for my magazine’s genre: indulgence, also giving insight to the rock ‘n’ roll juggling act of the editorial director and has enhanced my outlook on design, I think we all have something to learn from the Madrileños
