Format: Hardcover
I'm always hyper-critical of design books, because there's usually an equal measure of inspiring and uninspiring work inside. With Love Song, i picked it up one day and bought it the next [had to wait for pay day], and it truly is an amazing collection of work... the duo have a fairly monochromatic palette, and their use of vector, photo and typography is so stylish it warrants repeated attention. Nicely laid out too.

I really loved this book. It well captures the development of one of my favourite design companies. Beautifully designed and finished. I'd recommend this to any graphic designer. Lovely stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-own for contemporary graphic designers 6 Aug. 2007
By Amanda Ford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I don't care who you are, what your design "style" is, if you are an illustrator, graphic artist, or art director you can learn a lot from Non-Format. It's great to see how one studio's work can evolve from project to project, and it's a much more intimate way to experience it than just clicking through their site. There was a lot of work in this book I had never seen before as well, so definitely worth buying.
4.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational 22 Aug. 2008
By Chubby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Looking at Non-Format's works gave me a new perspective on design. They have a modern and concept-based approach on their works, which all turned out to be very strong but at the same time simple and clean. Reading the book is a wee bit troublesome though as I have to flip the pages to look at the art work the article is referring to. But overall, very inspirational and great design.
