Diagramming Modernity

Books and Graphic Design in Latin America, 1920–1940

Edited with text by Rodrigo Gutiérrez Viñuales, Riccardo Boglione. Text by Juan Manuel Bonet, Rodrigo Gutiérrez Viñuales, Riccardo Boglione, Marina Garone Gravier, Dafne Cruz Porchini.

A colossal trove of the countless design gems and innovations of modern publishing in Latin America

This massive publication offers the first comprehensive panorama of the Latin American illustrated book between the 1920s and 1940s, a period characterized by the rapid modernization of the region. The books reproduced here encapsulate this transformative era, expressing and embodying emergent national and continental narratives in Latin American countries.
Diagramming Modernity reproduces more than 1,000 illustrated first editions, analyzing the cornucopia of cultural narratives they contain. In addition to showcasing relatively unknown work by many consecrated artists, the publication also boasts an extensive repertoire of avant-garde artists largely forgotten until today. Chapters are devoted to countries and to specific themes such as Word-Image, Verbal Visualities, Pre-Columbianisms and Ancestralisms, and Social and Political Graphics. Writers and thinkers Rodrigo Gutiérrez Viñuales, Riccardo Boglione, Juan Manuel Bonet, Mariana Garone Gravier and Dafne Cruz Porchini conscientiously investigate these themes and more.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

PRINT

Steven Heller

In 'Diagramming Modernity' the idea was not to prioritize nationalities but to describe and analyze “small societies” of progressives who have been forgotten or ignored. The names of these pioneering artists/designers are doubtless unknown to most of us in North America and Europe, but thanks to Gutierrez Viñuales, Boglione and other proactive design historians, they are now revealed for future scholars and collectors to newly explore.
