To support Chicago Design: Histories and Narratives, a scholarly publication developed as an outgrowth of the two-day international conference of the same name, presented as part of Art Design Chicago 2018. Foregrounding a broad definition of design in Chicago, the volume is the first to look beyond previously studied examples of modernism, shedding light on lesser known—yet significant—design practices nurtured in Chicago from the late-nineteenth through twentieth century, by virtue of the city’s role as a national hub for printing, advertising, marketing, retail manufacturing, transportation, and design education.
