AIGA Boston Book Group: Graphesis

The book group returns with a discussion of Johanna Drucker's Graphesis: Visual Forms of Knowledge Production. Graphical interfaces have become a central part of the modern day-to-day experience. How do they shape knowledge? How important is it be able to understand and interpret visual forms, how they present and produce information, and the impact that has on how we view the world around us?

The book is available in paperback at bookstores and libraries.

The AIGA Boston Book Group meets every other month at the Katherine Small Gallery in Somerville. Read and discuss books on design with fellow members of the Boston design community.
