The American Design Adventure

Overview

The American Design Adventure continues the detailed examination of industrial design begun by Arthur Pulos in American Design Ethic. In that first volume he discussed and illustrated America's objects and artifacts, major designers, and schools of design from colonial times to 1940. This second splendidly illustrated volume carries the story into one of the most influential and exciting eras of American industrial design, the 1940s to the 1970s.

Arthur J. Pulos is Chairman Emeritus of the Department of Design at Syracuse University; President of Pulos Design Associates, past president, board chairman, and fellow of the Industrial Designers Society of America; and past president and now senator of the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design.

Endorsements

"A fascinating and full account of how industrial design grew and what the growing pains were like. By writing it Arthur Pulos has contributed enormously to a profession's understanding of itself .... The scope is vast, the research impressive, and the reading experience deeply satisfying, if you can tear yourself away from the pictures."
