Published by Propaganda
This weighty compilation of writings from 20 issues of ‘Graphic’ distils five years of interviews and other texts into a single volume. It intends to bring clarity to the magazine’s “effort to highlight the graphic design process and mindset by focusing on the independent approaches of its practitioners”, and offers more polished and complete versions of texts covering a wide spectrum of themes, perspectives and individual designers. Across more than 1000 pages, it also reflects the gradual transformation of ‘Graphic’ into an exploration into international visual culture. Both Korean and (since 2009) English writings have been republished.
