This book, using recycled paper and soy-based inks and including 50 tear-out posters, brings together the best contemporary graphic design that supports sustainability. Essays by the likes of Michael Bierut, Steven Heller, and Thomas Friedman look back to ideas that led to the current movement and discuss the state of the art today. The bulk of the book presents the finest work on sustainability by both emerging and established artists like Shepard Fairey, DJ Spooky, and James Victore. It suggests that graphic design doesn’t just react to the zeitgeist—it helps shape it.
