A *New* Program for Graphic Design is a do-it-yourself textbook that synthesizes the pragmatic with the experimental and builds on mid-to late-20th-century pedagogical models to convey advanced principles of contemporary design for a general reader.

Rooted in three courses (Typography, Gestalt, and Interface) originally developed for liberal arts students at Princeton University, the book provides a broad introduction to graphic design and visual literacy, from Benjamin Franklin to Bruno Munari, Moholy-Nagy to Muriel Cooper and the Macintosh computer.

This book was produced over three days in Los Angeles, based on eight years of teaching at Princeton University. One semester-long course was compressed and presented each day as six 45-minute lectures. These were recorded, transcribed, and edited with additional post-production.
