This study aims to investigate the influence of different publishing houses – Niggli Verlag (Teufen, CH), Hyphen Press (London, UK) and MIT Press (Cambridge, USA), Rotovision (Mies, UK/CH), and Van Nostrand Reinhold (New York, USA) — in shaping the field of graphic design specifically through pedagogical books. Understanding the publishing field as a “field of forces” and a “field of struggles” (BOURDIEU, 1993), the project’s goal is to further analyse how different publishing strategies have complemented, contrasted and countered each other.TutorsRobert Lzicar & Sundar HennyFileDownload file
