Somewhat unusual in shape compared to most other books, but it works.
It is absolutely loaded with photographs, all grouped within a theme. Although probably directed towards graphic designers and the broader design industry (some titles in this series explicitly say so), it would make a useful to a lot of photographers' book collections in that it should broaden their horizons within areas of photography that they might have previously not considered.
It is not a book to read as the text is limited to an introduction for each chapter; the author lets the pictures speak for themselves. It is one to pick up and study more than once.
