Format: Paperback
This is NOT your average 'pretty pictures' book about design. It is a critical analisys/discourse on current design theory. Covers all aspects of writing, from the origins of - to the politics of, and beyond. An excellent reference for serious typographers, and a mind-expanding read for anyone interested in visual communication. The book itself is also gem, nice format & size - it would have to be given the content. I would not hesitate to list it as a must have for All designers in visual communication/information architecture.

As a college student I have found this book to be a remarkable collection of thoughts and essays on the subject of graphic design. Covering a wide variety of topics from ancient Greek boustrophedon to Deconstruction and modern pictography it is a helpful, informative and enjoyable read. Ellen Lupton 'knows her stuff' and provides an insightful journy through the world of graphic design. Whether you're a fellow student, design enthusiast or avid reader you should read this book. You won't regret it.
