Graphic Design Timeline


The Graphic design timeline is an interactive guide which acts as an accompaniment to the fourth edition of "Meggs' History of Graphic Design", by Philip P. Meggs and Alston W. Purvis. Using flash technology the site provides a chronological history of graphic design, beginning in the year 15,000 BC and the Lascaux cave paintings, and covering the invention of writing, illuminated manuscripts, the advent of printing, the industrial revolution, the Arts and Crafts Movement, right up until the present day to the digital revolution and beyond.
