I hope they won't mind me mentioning it, but Phaidon have been very busy over the past few years compiling the Phaidon Archive of Graphic Design, to be published later this year (we all hope). And I've had a very, very small part to play in it by describing a few groundbreaking pieces of design, including the Alexander Rodchenko poster above, designed in 1924. Now you all know this poster, don't you? Or maybe you only know about the recycled Franz Ferdinand cover? And if that's the case, deduct marks for skipping your design history classes.
