Graphics RCA: Fifty Years and Beyond is edited by Teal Triggs, Adrian Shaughnessy and Anna Gerber was produced to accompany the exhibition of the same name. While offering a document of the work contained within the exhibition (London, 2014; Brasilia, 2015), the book takes the curatorial process further by commissioning essays and interviews from noted designers and historians external to the College. This objective perspective, coupled with the views of current staff, students and alumni, on the RCA's graphic design archives, brings new critical insights on the material, pedagogical processes and importantly the professional roles and impact of alumni internationally since the program's inception in 1948.
