First Sentence
another way to read the "end-of-print" prophecy. Perhaps it referred to Carson and the wave of experimentation that took print to the edge - as far as print could go. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
Viewing the pages in this book simply to experience works by the graphic artist David Carson fills one's mind with awe. The creativeness of Carson's exploration of type, layout and visual imagery amazes and inspires! Blackwell's compilation of images from Carson's folio forms an excellent source of reference and graphic stimulus for the designer and student alike. I have no idea if there is any accompanying text!

not really what i thought its a good book but it a bit out dated for what i was wanting but its good to look at work from the past to help generate new ideas but david carson him self wasn't a one for change so all the book is built up of dated deign work but its still good quality.

I bought this book for a project - well worth the money, I have used this book many times over. It is well illustrated with many examples of Carson's style.

This book is not for the faint-hearted. If you want neatly-justified paragraphs and standard column grids then stay away.
If, on the other hand, you're ready to let go of your pre-conceived notions about the role of typography and print in the mainstream media, then this book will blow you away.
It's typography with emotions. Inspirational.
