Visual Impact free pdf An accessible and richly illustrated exploration of how art and design have driven major social and political change in the 21st century. Visual Impact highlights the extraordinary power of art and graphic design to effect social and political change. Richly illustrated with over 400 images, this is a visual guide to the most influential and highly politicised imagery of the digital age.
