Magic of Lines II returns to the rich source of inspiration found in the most basic of illustrative forms: lines themselves. Works from a multitude of artists from all around the world explore how a talented illustrator can guide a viewer’s eye with the most simple of expressions and create movement and vivid depth with only a few strokes of a pen. The human body, impressionistic images, natural forms, and overwhelmingly detailed patterns are all accompanied by interviews with the artists, offering insight into their own inspirations and methods as well as suggestions for artists aspiring to reach new heights in their own art.

Graphic designers and illustrators are today’s cartographers, charting lands real and mythic, from gorgeous renderings in the fields of travel and recreation to stylized representations of the worlds of our favorite games or fantasy series. Tangible or virtual, maps have the singular ability to show us our place in the world, from where we are to where we are going. At the same time, they can convey information in a graphic way that enhances our experience of those places through creative embellishment. Some include infographics, which elevate their functionality, while others offer beautiful simplicity, incorporating stunning artwork more appropriate for gallery walls. Whereas the mapmakers of previous centuries used their abilities on limiting the unknown, today’s pioneering designers are focused on showing us what is possible.

Designers often look to earlier decades or generations for inspiration, borrowing motifs and palettes that are recognizable through their ability to elicit nostalgia. From the ever-popular 50s and 60s to the growing interest in the early years of the 20th century, this rejuvenated aesthetic can influence everything from fashion and hair (or beard styles) to housewares and furniture. New Retro focuses specifically on graphic designers that evoke bygone eras with their creative work. The first section showcases logo design and examines the ways in which designers are able to incorporate vintage typefaces and imagery to create new and innovative brand identities and logotypes. The second section presents highly skillful graphic output, from poster and print design to fashion, product, packaging design and more, that nods back while leaning forward.

No longer confined to a flat medium, illustration has been liberated to new heights of fancy limited solely by the imaginations of today’s leading artists. Some employ paper cutting to create multilayered worlds that you look into rather than upon. Others work with fabric or thread, embroidering colorful conceptual masterpieces that have the ability to shock or surprise. Still others make use of mixed media, not wishing to be limited by choice of material when crafting their individual visions. Whether two or three dimensional, each of the artworks featured reflect an entirely unique voice, which expands upon the very definition of illustration. Artists include Gregory Euclide, Frank Plant, Chris Maynard, Christine Kim, Bovey Lee, and Irma Gruenholz.

As technology has rapidly advanced, so too has the way we use and interact with it. Gone are the days of flat black backgrounds dotted with blocky green text; now, users expect a massive range of colors, layouts, and fonts to be used to entertain and assist them in their daily lives. GUI Design assembles the best of recent graphic user interface for a collection that provides practical encouragement for those new to the world as well as inspiration for experienced designers. The book gathers Twitter’s Vine video creation app for Windows phones, the vulgar yet amusing Authentic Weather app, an application designed to help tourists follow the physical and ideological path of the Iron Curtain, and more to showcase programs that balance information flow with user experiences and highlight the creativity, inspiration, and expressive techniques used in their design. The projects within demonstrate the increasingly significant role of user interfaces in both design and our everyday lives in the modern world.
