Excrutiating design is not the best way to sell a book on ... design!
on 16 July 2015
I honestly haven't read this book, but the cover is so off-putting it makes me wonder whetehr the author has any idea about design whatsoever. This impression was blostered while taking a look iside. Awful over-designed layouts, as bad as a computer magazine. This seems to be the victory of DTP over ... everything. Almost nothing is conveyed any more. Not that I am in any way anti-avant-garde. Au contraire. But as everywehre there is good and bad, and this falls most sucessfully in the latter category. (I repeat, I haven't read the book so will not comment on what by all accounts is a jolly good read. For this it gets one more star than I would otherwise give this product.)
