Graphic Design Cookbook: Mix and Match Recipes for Better, Faster Layouts
Graphic Design Cookbook: Mix and Match Recipes for Better, Faster Layouts

3.0 out of 5 stars Cookbook?, 9 Dec 2002
I found this book okay, it consists of pages showing the basic frame work of a page layout or how text can be shown differently. There are no photographs or "real" examples in this book and the pages are all black and white.
However it would be useful if you had a mental block, for say a design of an editorial page, and needed to produce something quickly, as you could dip into the book and come up with a few different ideas.
Good value for money!

3.0 out of 5 stars letterhead and logo design, 9 Dec 2002
As a Graphic Designer I found this book really good to have on my desk, its great for inspiration! I would have found it much more useful to have a paragraph of writing explaining the artwork, such as why it's designed in such a way and how the design reflects the particular company. Some of the design is typically American but overall there are some great examples.
