This well conceived book, laid out by Struktur Design, presents some of the best book design of the last ten years...there's certainly much for bibliophiles to pore over. -- Creative Review

I had to create a book for my degree fulfillment for college, and this book had wonderful inspiration. Definitely recommended.

The rare catalog that's more than the sum of its parts

This book doesn't pretend to be anything other than a catalog of interestingly designed books from the last 10-15 years, but much of the work it catalogs is beautiful, from Irma Boom's "big book" to Derek Birdsall's new edition of the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. As usual, many of the most elegant and refined examples portrayed are themselves either books on graphic design or typography, or are themselves design catalogs. However, for designers looking for unusual ideas on binding, and for those interested postmodern examples of grid-based design, this is sure to be thought-provoking.
Worthwhile Overview of Contemporary Book Design

This book presents an extensive and worthwhile overview of important contemporary book designs. Definitely worth picking up and looking at if only to get an idea as to what art and design books are held in high regard.

If you have any interest in and concern for the written word in extended texts then this book is not for you: 95% of these designers seem to actively loathe it. It already looks out of date; grossly impoverished intellectually, this arty rubbish is of a piece with the poverty of contemporary trade book production.
