About this title:

Synopsis: According to the cliché, California is the place where anything goes and everyone does their own thing. Maybe thats because everyone knows that in California theres no terra firma: earthquakes, mudslides, fires, and the occasional civil uprising cause constant upheaval and change. It is also legendary as fertile ground for creativity, freedom, and social consciousness, where the status quo undergoes constant renovation. This book is the first to capture the enormous body of distinctive and visually ecstatic graphic design that emanated from this great state throughout most of the twentieth century. Edited and designed by graphic designer Louise Sandhaus, this raucous gathering of smart, offbeat, groundbreaking graphic design from the Left Coast will amaze readers with its breadth and richness.

Review: This book certainly does capture the colour and spirit of Californian graphic design in the twentieth century. --Times Literary Supplement

A 'dinner party that serves only desserts', it is a celebratory journey through iconic and beautiful design. --AnotherMag.com

As you'd expect this is a bright, colourful and celebratory book but there's some impressively (and refreshingly) unpretentious design writing here too. --itsnicethat.com

An absolute delight, filled with raucous colour and smart, offbeat design, which is rich in expression and vision. --Aesthetica

The capitalized words of the title announce the fraught terrain of Louise Sandhaus's excellent new survey of California graphic design. --Eye Magazine

Shines a super-sunny, smiley light on one area of the state's excellence that hasn't had its dues: graphic design ... A happy survey of some of the iconic contributions residents and natives have made to architecture, poster design and motion graphics, in a particularly let-it-all-hang-out Californian way. --Esquire

An energetic and energy-rich new study ... In both its exciting content and multi-coloured page design, this attractively bound hardback, with an imposing debossed title-piece, is a gorgeously uninhibited piece of work ... a spectacular collection presented with great energy and panache. --Creative Review

A gorgeous new book encapsulating highlights from the golden state. --Corinne Jones, Observer
