3.0 out of 5 stars A visual library of graphical communication devices, 22 Feb. 2010
A. Byrnes "Andie" (London, UK) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 1,000 Icons, Symbols, and Pictograms (Paperback)
This is a visual library of icons and symbols designed for a number of different companies by a number of different designers. The collection shows dozens of single images, each representing an idea, process or activity.

If you are looking for ideas for producing your own, this is a good place to start. There is no explanation or breakdown of how the designs came to be. You see the final product, and what it's purpose was (there are some photos showing some of the designs in use), but there is no attempt to show you how the final product was arrived at.

There is a very short introduction (one page side), a short designer directory and index, and a few lines about the author.

I was looking for something that would help me to understand how ideas evolved into icons, and this book does not provide that, but it is a useful collection of visual devices to help you to come up with ideas of your own.
