Productive work comes from a creative workplace environment!

Because the work environment has a huge impact on employees¡Ç performance, many successful companies value how they design their workplaces to keep their employees happy and productive. For example, an open space where people can gather and communicate can motivate and inspire them to come up with new ideas. A meditation room allows employees to calm down and recover their concentration, leading to positive benefits for everyone in the company to work in harmony.

This second title in the Renovation Graphics series showcases those creative and unconventional renovations of offices. In this book, ¡Èoffice¡É is defined as ¡Èworkspace¡É and includes not only a room in an office building but also an atelier, a workshop, a vacant house and a school renovated into an office. Unlike other books, this collection presents spatial design along with graphic design, introducing many graphic design tools such as company logos, signage, business cards, brochures, letter head and package design.

This book is the best inspirational reference book for professional graphic designers, space designers, and architectural designers.

more detail
A treasure box of light and shadow, a fantasy world in black and white

Before innovations in printing and photographic technology were introduced to the world, black and white illustration was the only way to visualize the scenes from children¡Çs books and novels. Because it took a lot of skill to produce rarefied, detailed-oriented black and white illustrations, it is said that the 19th century was the time when illustrators¡Ç drawing technique was at its height. That is why the mid- to late 19th century is considered the golden age of black and white illustration. At the same time, it was also the last age of glory for black and white illustrations. This book collects masterpieces by many highly respected illustrators from that era, featuring artists such as John Tenniel, who was the illustrator for Alice¡Çs Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871); Kay Nielsen, the Danish illustrator who contributed to the publication of Fairy Tales by Hans Andersen (1924) and Hansel and Gretel, and Other Stories (1925); and Aubrey Beardsley, the influential illustrator and a contributor to the Art Nouveau movement who is known especially for his drawings for Oscar Wilde's play Salome. John Tenniel has contributed to Punch (or The London Charivari), the legendary British weekly magazine of humor and satire, and many illustrations from Punch are showcased in this book, as well.

This carefully curated presentation of a world in monochrome will make many readers realize and be amazed by the power each line has in these black and white illustrations. You will find many new discoveries you might have not noticed before when compared with color illustrations.

It is not too much to say that the black and white illustration of this time is the origin of today¡Çs animation, manga and other artworks. Hiroshi Unno, author of PIE International¡Çs art collection series, has gathered this definitive collection together with thorough introductions of the origin of each illustration. This book will be a must-have not only for art lovers but also for professional illustrators.
