Editor: Briar Levit

Paperback

Overview

Baseline Shift captures the untold stories of women across time who used graphic design to earn a living while changing the world.

Baseline Shift centers diverse women across backgrounds whose work has shaped, shifted, and formed graphic design as we know it today. From an interdisciplinary book designer and calligrapher starting out in Harlem’s Renaissance, to the invisible drafters of Monotype’s drawing office, the women represented here include auteurs, advocates for social justice, and creators ahead of their time. The fifteen essays in this illustrated collection come from contributors with a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. Baseline Shift is essential reading for students and practitioners of graphic design, as well as anyone with an interest in women’s history.

"Baseline Shift challenges not only what gender, race, and nationality we think of when we say 'graphic designer' but also how the work gets done and what purpose it serves..Telling this more capacious history is an important step towards a future of expanded possibilities for us all."
- Kelli Anderson, author of This Book Is a Planetarium,
