Product Description


The evolution of vector motion graphics is an amazing story. It gained prominence in the printing industry around five years ago when vector-based graphics were used by designers for the tracing of photographs, a process that gave images a fresh new look. Later, on the world-wide web, people were astonished by vector-based scalable animation created using Macromedia Flash. This book features the work of over 50 vector graphic designers from around the world. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars A useful tool 29 Oct 2007
This is a beauteful and strange book. I bought this some years ago, and it is brilliant for reference and inspiration. We have also used this to dicuss different approaches with our clients.
The only downside to this "package" (that in adition to the book itselfcontains a flipbook and a DVD with all the examples) is that the navigation on the DVD don't allow you to skip to a specific clip. You can only choose a chapter, and fast forward to what you would like to see.
Other then that, it is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lowfat Graphics 3 Feb 2004
With most moving image books falling well short of the mark - this really is a fantastic book - I'd say the best moving image book I have seen to date and I would recommend it to anyone who is working in motion graphics/ Graphic design.
As a design student who has a tendancy to drift into the moving image area when I can - this book is the perfect reference for inspriration - the dvd is packed full of short vector based animations (some include images as well).
It looks good - has loads of images from the sequences in the main book area - a flick book that offers animation when you have no dvd player - and a dvd.
Dont wait another second fools - buy this book now!

4.0 out of 5 stars A few issues, but in generl, this is fantastic 8 April 2004
By Paul Collegio - Published on Amazon.com
I also had a similar problem with the DVD being glued into the book. I was able to remove it with a tiny amount of damage - the DVD image got a little scratched. No big deal, and the DVD works fine, but it *is* disappointing. My flip book came out of the package without any issues though.
This really *is* an incredible experience, though, and I highly recommend it. If you love experimetnal format books, this is especially for you.
The biggest issue I have with this is the navigation of the DVD; it is broken into foru sections: commercials, Idents, Music Videos and Animation. Navigation between individual pieces within each category doesnt seem to be possible, which is puzzling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 4 Oct 2004
By subgrav - Published on Amazon.com
The fact that the DVD contains Virgin Airlines "safety" video on it is alone worth the price of admission (or purchase, as the case may be...) Additionally, though, the book offers a very nice overview of motion graphics, complete with a separate flip book for added amusement. The graphics are inspiring for anyone looking to stimulate their creative juices and present something new and interesting to their client.

Using the aforementioned Virgin Air safety video as an example, this is a brilliant example of what can be achieved in pushing the envelope while still making the relevant and important information easily understandable to the end consumer.

Also, regarding the DVD, I had no problems removing it. Perhaps there are two versions of this book/set out there?

3.0 out of 5 stars the cult of package design 16 May 2004
By T - Published on Amazon.com
okay, so the dvd was a *tad* hard to get out, but it did get out unharmed eventually. once you get past this 'obstacle' though, the rest of the packaging is really cool.
the book present itself as a suitcase of sorts with all these 'stickers' stuck to the front. the cover is a hologram/lenticular graphic which means depending on which angle you view the cover from, you'll see different stickers. the flip book fits snugly into your 'suitcase' as a set of shirts and pants. while pretty novel, is still nevertheless fun to flip though and see segments of the various animations contained on the dvd (except for a McFetridge one which wasn't - baaad!).
the dvd is mastered a bit weirdly though. you can't actually navgiate through all the items individually - only by sections which was mildly annoying. the content however is pretty consistent (even though i wish it was in PAL instead of bleedy/fuzzy NTSC - sorry NTSC people!) which is more than i can say for another motion graphics/animation book i got at the same time (flips animation 7)
the book itself is great, even if it was a bit hard to read when stuck to the heavy cover. if you're easy amused though, you be prepared to forgive these little 'sins' and just enjoy a all round pretty solid book & dvd!

1.0 out of 5 stars Form follows function forgotten! 28 Dec 2003
By liz - Published on Amazon.com
The book is packed full of interesting imagery and inspiring vector graphics, however, it is so poorly designed, you'll be lucky to enjoy it to the full potential. It includes a DVD and a flip book in addition to the main book. In my copy, the dvd was glued into the cover, making it very difficult to remove. Once I finally DID pry it out I had to scrape glue off of the disc. Poor design.
The flip book is literally WEDGED into the cover and so far has been completely impossible to remove without destroying both the smaller book and its larger home. VERY poor design.
The cover of the whole book is a reflective material that is glued onto a thinner paper, Upon opening the book for the first time, the reflective material began to peel away from the base paper, leaving unsightly air bubbles and glue remains visible under the cover. It's a mess! I'm so disappointed with the design of this book it's hard to enjoy its contents.
I am hoping that my copy is a fluke and a non-defective copy will replace it, however I fear it is just bad from the start.
Approach with caution.
