Summary When All Consuming Images first appeared ten years ago, it quickly established itself as a classic, with its textured historical analysis and lucid discussion of the power of style in contemporary society. All Consuming Images has profoundly influenced the fields of art, architecture, and graphic design, insightfully exploring how the sensibility of style has shaped the profoundly consumerist culture in which we live.
In his new foreword, Ewen scrutinizes the social thought that brought the image to prominence as a primary tool of public address, and presents revealing new autobiographical testimonies that illuminate the problematic place images occupy in young people's sense of themselves and their world.
