Amazon: Beautiful & Inspiring Books:
As a designer and someone interested in design history I am really enjoying this book. It is exceptionally well researched, the imagery is beautifully reproduced throughout this heavily illustrated volume – it is rare to find an art book printed so well on un-coated paper stock. Great care was given not only in researching, writing and photographing the illustrations the book – but in its graphic design and print production as well. This is the kind of book that would never be the same in digital format – it is luscious to look at, to feel and it smells like a beautifully printed book too.
