The Library will host a book party celebrating the publication of the first two volumes of Victor Margolin’s World History of Design on Wednesday, April 22, at 4 p.m., in Daley Library room 1-470.
Margolin, professor emeritus of design history, will join three UIC faculty for a discussion of Design History: Scholarship, Pedagogy, and Practice
- Amir Berbic, Associate Professor, Graphic Design
- Jonathan Mekinda, Assistant Professor, Design History
- Philip Burton, Professor and Chair, Graphic Design
Prof. Margolin will present a copy of World History of Design to the University Library. The work is a result of more than 15 years of research and the first comprehensive history to cover design on a global scale. The first two volumes, published by Bloomsbury Academic and including 1,000 images, cover design from the beginning of human culture to the end of World War II. A third volume on design from the end of World War II to the present is in preparation.
