Product Description

Synopsis

An examination of the shape and size of the designed page. It reveals how decisions made at this initial stage of the design process have a huge impact on the finished design. Designers can completely alter a concept by changing the format of a page. Today, with so much information being projected through screen in a conventional horizontal format, it is appealing to see shapes that are a bit more unusual and therefore more stimulating. This manual looks at the ways in which contemporary designers are pushing the boundaries in design and in this way are exploring exciting questions such as how to make a book that does not look like a book.

4.0 out of 5 stars MIND EXPANDING INSIGHT TO PUBLICATION 18 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is without doubt the finest book of its kind I have read. It features the most diverse ideas used in modern publication from a selection of the country's most prestigious design houses, carefully following the theme of intelligent and creative thinking. I read this book once and had to have it in my collection - it is an inspiration to graphic designers of any level.

3.0 out of 5 stars the philosophy angle 13 Sep 2002
By "101-1"
Format:Paperback
Not what i expected. This book's main method is to give you examples of non standard literature design while avoiding any real insight from the creators. Instead what you get are theories and philosophies of the formats by the authors.
A respectable range of designs and formats are demonstrated but they are never really dug into, to find interesting aspects such as user's views and designer's aims.
Worth designer's shelf space but not a regular read for inspiration.
