Book Description

1 Nov 2009
Following the success of CD-Art, DVD-Art, Mag-Art, and Poster-Art, Book-Art showcases an international collection of exemplary and innovative book design. From mass-market publications to glossy coffee table and exclusive artist s books, Book-Art explores both the creative inspiration and the logistics behind the work. Showcasing the most captivating examples of book design, alongside insightful interviews with designers, Book-Art explores solutions for creating impact, directing readers through layers on information, and providing a usable publication and desirable object. It examines the use of colour, artwork, and typography to achieve successful covers and interior design; utilizing principles of information design; creating a three- dimensional element through the use of pop-ups, foldouts, and inserts; and adding value through the opportune use of printing and finishing methods.

I highly recommend this product to graphic design students. It's full of contemporary inspirational work. As a student of graphic design myself it helped me during publication design project a lot. I think it's one of must have books or at least one to read books for students.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice books weird design 24 Jun 2008
By Ozon Revac - Published on Amazon.com
The books contained in this book are fabulous, but the book itself has some ugly pages with unresolved maximalism. With empty interviews, brief explanations on the books and boring graphics I can't give it more than a 3.
