Comprised of 20 countries located in North, South, and Central America as well as the Caribbean Islands, Latin America is populated by over 500 million people. From Argentina to Mexico, all Latin American countries are Spanish-speaking with the exception of Portuguese-speaking Brazil. Latin America has been producing a very unique form of graphic expression for decades and this historical publication brings together the best examples from the 20th century as well as today.This volume begins with an extensive historical essay about the region's contribution to design and achievements as well as a timeline featuring the development of graphic design in the region from 1900 to the current day, indicating parallels to the most important world events - design or otherwise. The main body of the book features A to Z entries of more than 200 designers and design offices that have built up and continue to champion the Latin design identity. Finally, a handy index facilitates access to key information in the book, such as designers' names, countries, publications, educational institutions, and most famous events.
