I'm an art student, and as I was interested in orders and structures I picked this up in the bookshop, thinking "oh, what's structuralism?" This book was so inspiring, its concise and excellent explanation of the key ideas with diverse and sometimes surprising references, was absolutely riveting. I read it in one evening, without being able to put it down, and it has formed a fundamental point of inspiration to me. Absolutely brilliant.
