5.0 out of 5 stars great book for inspiration 6 Nov 2013
By Ying,XU
Verified Purchase
This is such an inspiring book. Our teacher recommended this book in class so I bought it, and it's really amaaaazing! However it is a little expensive to me, considering the paper it used is not that good... But overall, it's a great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars inspiring 4 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Every single page of this book is just bursting with fantastic examples of illustration, typography and graphic design. It inspired me to do a whole project, however mine was nowhere near as good as this book. A definite must...

1.0 out of 5 stars Rotten Tomatoes 30 Dec 2004
By A Customer
This project typified the trend in the 1990s for graphic designers to take the "artist" part of commercial artist a little too seriously. The tedious, derivative work that resulted served only to prove Tomato were not very good artists. Undaunted they continue to foist vanity projects unto an uncaring world. Shame, really.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frustration 13 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Why is this so hard to find? Because Gingko Press hasn't reprinted it.
Why won't they reprint it? Because they never know that we're looking for it.
If it's not available, and Amazon isn't going to tell the publisher that this titled is sought after (and believe me, it is), WHY IS IT IN YOUR INVENTORY LIST???

3.0 out of 5 stars No title for my review 17 Feb 2007
By Andrew Kerr - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've had this book for a few years, now. Its curiosity to me stems almost exclusively from its connection to the excellent band Underworld, who share a band member or two with the Tomato group. Underworld fans will inevitably find it a source of fascination, as it visually represents the most important turning point of that band's career (when they switched from focusing on original lyrics to stealing scraps of everyday conversations around them, which are reproduced in this volume and also in the liner notes to their album "Dubnobasswithmyheadman"). Many of the words and images from the book were used in Underworld releases throughout the 1990's. It is impossible for me to remove it from this context. People who are not fans of Underworld will experience it on a different level. It's an oddity; a book that superbly complements two brilliant Underworld albums ("Dubnobasswithmyheadman" and "Second Toughest in the Infants"), but by itself probably falls on its face. The follow-up volume, "Bareback," takes the same concepts to a much higher level, and for Tomato fans is probably a more worthwhile investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dynamic experience 8 July 2004
By carolineliza - Published on Amazon.com
This document speaks and shouts volumes.
I don't believe that this book will be for everyone, but the designer who is more of an artist, who attempts at perceiving and articulating the world in personal, informative ways.. this is for you.
Ok.. the book is a little dated now, but if you want to be inspired to get back to your roots of cutting and pasting, this book will inspire.
This is all about taking the environment we live in, and creating dynamic visual experiences that intensify and define that space.. it's really quite brilliant where this came from.. and where they have gone (tomato) speaks volumes about the power of this approach to design.

a gorgeous book that any fan of underworld should have in their collection. My copy was printed in 2004, arrived with some slight scuffs from shipping and packing, but appears unopened.
