Offset printed in 3 colors, DDDD is a softcover perfect-bound A5-size book filled with the terminology needed for assorted cultural practices. It includes diagrams of both Japanese and Latin typeface anatomy, and is chock-full of playful illustrations for each section.

Terms are grouped under general themes and topics including Shapes & Forms, Design Terms, Color, Design & Empire, Studying Culture, Design & Disaster, Propaganda, History & Geography, Nostalgia, Typography, Design Movements, The Modern, Digital Design, Photography, The “Feminine”, Painting, and Economics & Finance.

Features a lively intro by Ian Lynam, who designed the book with Nicole Ann Yotsue Kimura. Edited by Nicole, Ian, Yuki Kameguchi, Iori Kikuchi and Ayumi Watanabe. 

DDDD is the result of years of in-class research at Temple University Japan where over 100 students participated in putting together this book (and then the editorial team spent over a year fixing everyone’s homework).

Fluorescent green and neon yellow covers, fluorescent green inside covers, and black & white interior pages. DDDD is the much-expanded follow-up to our bestselling out-of-print phrasebook zine Doko Demo Design.

Doko Demo Design Deluxe features hundreds of more terms, corrected terms, increased readability, and will stand as a design reference you’ll return to again and again!
