Invaluable reference tool for all designers.
on 3 May 2013
In my view this guide is overall, the best comprehensive book for design reference.
In particular Interior Design, but would also be very useful for anybody studying Architecture/Design/Art as it gives one an insight into period detail and historic domestic styling - which are all related whatever your specialist field of design.
It is a bit of a "Tome" but don't let this put you off. Illustrations are detailed and text is concise yet informative. All in all this book provides invaluable tool, additionally it's a really interesting read.
Right now - as far as I am aware, this is the most recent updated and revised of the book (of which there are previous versions available.)
