Raizman, David, and Carma R. Gorman, editors, Objects, Audiences, and Literatures: Alternative Narratives in the History of Design
 
    This book of essays in the history of design stems from papers delivered at a session for the 2005 Annual College Art Association Conference held in Atlanta Georgia. Subsequent to the CAA conference, I was asked to submit a proposal dealing with the theme of literature and design which resulted in the expanded essays in this book. Carma Gorman, Associate Professor in the School of Art and Design at Southern Illinois University (Carbondale), kindly agreed to serve as co-editor, and a relevant essay by Elizabeth Guffey, Associate Professor of Art History at SUNY Purchase, was included.
    The text below is from the back cover of the book.
