3.0 out of 5 stars I agree, it lacks video examples, 6 Jan 2006
This review is from: Type in Motion 2: No. 2 (Hardcover)
This book deserves recognition for gathering together some of the great audio visual graphics in recent years. The case studies on offer are dynamic in every way imaginable and are responsible for consistently raising the bar for each designer out there.
Where it fails however is showing them in their full glory. I am fully aware it would have cost more money, but if there was a DVD/CDROM with quicktime clips of these examples this would be an indispensable book. But with screen grabs and descriptions of what they look like these great works lose the quality that makes them what they are: motion.
For the student writing his dissertation I am sure this was useful. For the working graphics artist, this will be frustrating. So get it out of the library before you place your order. If the next edition comes with video examples, then I will happily buy it.
