An excellent collection of around 3500 logos from a wide range of contemporay designers including the likes of ; Buro-destruct, DED associates, Eboy , Rinzen and Woodtli.
The book is cleverly broken up into four main sections;
Logos, Lettering, Typograms and Combinations. As well hundereds of pages of beautifully layed out images the book also contains an interesting and informative introduction about the evolution of the logo. I would recommend this book as a must have to anybody with an interest in graphic design.

This book packs a lot of logos, over 1700 of them.

There are two points to note, though.

First, the designs are really experimental. There are lots of unusual logo applications. While the logos have style, they lack the elegance, and hence you won't see any big name client examples. Many I guess are designed for short term usage, for events, products, etc.

The other thing is, logos featured from the same design firm have similar styles. While they look different, they feel the same. When I'm looking at a series of logos, sometimes it's hard to tell them apart.

The large number of logos featured makes this a good resource for ideas. However, if you're looking for classy logos, this might not be the book for you.

The paperback actually has a cover that's quite hard, so I won't recommend the hardcover if it cost much more.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

To some this book may sound like a nightmare. After all does a society ruled by brands, logos and trademarks really need a book full of them? Maybe not, but this book is worth getting just for its great cover design, and for anyone interested in the art of logos (like me) this is a must have. Very post modernist, and very trendy.

The book is absolutely amazing! I am greatly satisfied with the decision of buing it. It is my first book from the collection of "Los Logos", and I'm definitely going to buy the previous ones soon. Speaking of materials, the book "Los Logos 7" is printed on high quality smooth, thick paper, the cover is really solid and proper, coated with fabric. The book is made with a huge care about the details and designed clearly and comfortable in perception. The content of the book: huge collection of interesting logos form around the world is really impressive and inspiring. On the bottom of each page we can find a little title, pointing to which category can we assign each of the projects, for example geometric, framed, pictorial or illustrative typography. This book should be undeniably the obligatory position for any graphic designer, typo-lover or design student

A high quality book with 100's of logos. I use this book for inspiration and idea generation.

Treat yourself to the hardcover version. It excellent value for money and well worth the investment.

The logos are obscure, but that makes them more interesting when trying to guess what sort of business they were created for.

I have the yellow, red and gold versions of the books. Will get remainder soon!
