Product description

Review

"A 624-page strip tease performed with an endless variety of veils... The book tantalizes readers with glimpses into the thinking of one of the most creative minds at work in design today."―New York Times

"A book form that's partly a journal of ideas, creative anthology, social critique, manifesto for change and a superlative piece of design."―Blueprint

"An insightful and exhilarating analysis of image culture."―Dazed and Confused

"A wide-ranging, fascinating view of the world, it offers hundreds of explanations (or observations) of what we see around us."―Guardian
