Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was recommended this book by one of my tutors on my Graphic Design course. I must say that it turned out to be one of the most useful and inspiring books I have ever read. Someone did point out one little glitch regarding the snowflakes and its sides. Aside from that error (depending on you agreeing to that) this book is an absolute treasure that no Graphic Designer should be without. Really well done, it utilizes transparent sheets that fit on top of the diagrams and images to explain how the composition was built. I can't stress how good this book is, pick it up from your library and I guarantee, you will come running back to purchase it.

Accessible introduction to the concept of Golden Ratio proportion and it's influence and application in design. May lead you to delve deeper into this fascinating subject. Fibonacci Rocks!
