Oldie but a goodie

This is almost certainly worth the seemingly high price. It is a fresh look at some great contemporary design work from all over the world. Includes stuff we have all seen before and some which is unfamous and unknown. Great for contrasting design work. Well worth it.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 23 August 2002
The cover is best thing about this now dated attempt to locate design not just in the work of an elite world of artists and designers, but also in the "vernacular"-that is, the everyday items that surround us. To that end, the book positions "found" items such as shipping boxes, torn up billboards, and scraps of paper next to commercial packaging, next to highly designed pieces. What happens is that next to same old overdesigned catalog spreads, arty CD packaging, and industry self-promo pieces, the found objects become a lot more interesting. Of course, I didn't need a book to tell me that, a simple walk down my litter-strewn and graffittied street does the trick just as well. The editors try and get all clever by not putting designer credits next to the pieces, instead printing them on removable stickers in the rear.
