AIS/Design. Storia e ricerche n. 6, dedicated to the theme “Designers and writing in the twentieth century” is now online

"The articles gathered in this issue of the journal – edited by Fiorella Bulegato, Maddalena Dalla Mura and Carlo Vinti – examine the objectives and the ways in which designers have embraced the medium of writing, concurrently or within their design practice, or for the purpose of advancing thought, criticism or divulgation; they also explore the language, the wording and the editorial formats chosen by designers for their texts and consider the influence of these texts on the education and on the profession of designers."
