Terrible edition of good book
on 19 July 2011
With this one star review I am not criticising Lippmann's work, I am criticising BN Publishing's layout and design, the actual book as an object.
Try to buy a different edition of Public Opinion if you can, this one is ugly and difficult to read. The prose spreads so far across the page that it is difficult to read the last word of each line as it becomes engulfed by the crease of the spine. The page titles and the layout look incredibly amateurish and the paper feels incredibly cheap.
The dimensions of the book are also ridiculous. It is so wide, lines run on forever over a page and the book looks stupid, sticking out on the bookshelf far further than any other in your collection.
The glossy - almost mirrored - look of the cover just adds to the amateur, ugly look.
The prose of Public Opinion deserve a much better vessel than this shiny shambles.
