Item description for Armando Testa by Giorgio Verzotti, Armando Testa, Gemma De Angelis Testa & Vittorio Gregotti...
Perhaps the most important artist in the history of Italian graphic design, Armando Testa has explored the most diverse languages of visual communication for over a half-century, inventing new ways of expressing ideas, and designing enormously innovative works for television. "Armando Testa" documents Testa's activity from the beginning of his career to his last works, collecting many of his most important pieces--advertising posters, sketches, book illustrations and covers from the 40s and 50s; photographic work for advertising from the 70s; posters and trademarks created for social causes and cultural events during the 80s; and work done outside of the field of advertising and publicity, for Testa's own creative purposes, from the 80s right up to his death. This attractive and exciting new monograph also includes a detailed biography and bibliography as well as an "imography": a catalogue, with commentary, of every one of Testa's amazing images.
