The layout of the book itself is impeccable (as it should be) and provides an easy to follow satisfying read. The examples of contemporary work shown are suitable but limited in their sources and as a result potentially limit the diversity possible in this subject. In terms of navigating around and finding useful information this book is great, it's sat on my shelf and easy to jump into at any point to provide inspiration and advice. I'd definitely recommend it for students and practising designers. It provides enough depth and detail to grab your attention on specific areas of the subject.
Overall this book is really easy to read and covers layout principles well. Unfortunately I think its downfall is it tries to make us aware of how layout principles are relevant in each aspect of everyday life and whilst I agree, in doing this, the author has had to cover a multitude of subjects and in some cases in a limited fashion. In places subjects such as Architecture and Interior Design appear which are truly relevant but they lack any real detail.Read more ›
It's full of nifty examples of creative layout - a good selection of contemporary work as well as some key historical pieces.
It makes you appreciate one of the most fundamental parts of design all over again. I'd recommend this to students and designers, just because its so full of interesting ideas.
