About this book

A guide to exhibition design for museums, heritage, and trade and world fairs. The author asserts that techniques are not what make an exhibition, but the wider the range of techniques available to the designer, the better the chance of successful communication. This second edition has been changed a comparatively small amount, as the world of exhibitions has changed very little since the publication of the first edition. Certain chapters have been added, renamed or amended. The book does not attempt to teach style, fashion or taste - it is entirely preoccupied with the essential skills and practicalities of design and the philosophy of presentation.


The exhibition; the designer; the client; the brief; the words; the principles; the techniques; the design; the production; the completion; the maintenance; the end result.
