I have been researching about graphic design trends and its evolution. Can someone please suggest a particular book or website about this subject?

Meggs' History of Graphic Design is the one that we used in college and I go back to it more than any other textbook. It starts with hieroglyphics and cave paintings and goes all the way up to the modern times. It's a great resource for inspiration and knowledge...I can't recommend it enough!

If cost is an issue, go back an edition and pick up a used copy.
