A bibliophile's dream ... an informative overview. --Creative Review

Immaculate photographs and printed texts - most of them open to full spread - beckon the reader to consider each work as physical artifact, as graphic construction, and as fully viewable content. --Eye Magazine

A truly splendid documentation and illustration of graphic design history ... Really recommended. --DesignIsFine.org

Glorious reproductions. --Publishers Weekly

What this book lacks in content it compensates with beautiful illustrations.
This book gives a fantastic overview of graphic innovation based on the books in the Special Collections of Amsterdam University.

The only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars has nothing to do with the content or the illustrations, it has to do with the weight of the book. It looks like an expensive printing (good paper), but the book weighs 3.5 kg...

This book contains a fantastic selection of the history of Western book design. It is beautifully produced and the text is concise and informative. It is a beautiful book about beautiful books and constitutes extraordinary value. Of all the books I possess, there is none I am more pleased to have.
