5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 20 Jan 2008

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have to disagree with the previous reviewer. This is the most comprehensive and easily interpreted book I have read on the subject. It covers the entire process - from asking what a book actually is - through the organization of information - to shrink wrapping. It also unravels the mystery and philosophy behind various grid systems and has generally answered many questions I have had for years to which I've never really found straight-forward answers. And, unlike some books on Design, it has been designed extremely well with an excellent balance between text and image, diagrams and photography. Fantastic stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Design 1 Feb 2009
As always Andrew Haslam can be depended on to provide an in-depth historical survey of his subject. This particular book promises all that it claims on the cover - Comprehensive, practical, essential resource for students and designers, with carefully structured text and illustrations. A great book that should be part of every young designers library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! 15 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Andrew Haslam looks like managed a book for a wide audience - from beginners to professionals. This is the most comprehensive, organized and well presented book I've seen on the subject - and the only piece on that topic in my library. I saw it as an investment, because I really didn't want to miss in case it goes out of print some day. To me, it is a perfect reference book on Book Design and covers all major issues in necessary depth. I also had the priviledge to meet the author Andrew Haslam in person and I should confess that the book only reflect a small part of his knowledge and genious.
