Format: Hardcover
I have to admit I was drawn to this book because of the cover. It was just so darn pretty. I tend to be drawn to geometric prints in home, art and fashion. This book definitely has it's share of geometry, but what I actually enjoyed best were the snippets she wrote on her design process. Allegra considered such topics as memory, gardens, complementaries, texture, multiplicity, water, India, contrast, composition, energy and eclecticism while creating her designs. It was rather inspirational to read about her process and now I plan on exploring these topics myself through photography. I'm going to use these topics as springboards for my own designs. It will be fun to see what emerges!

Wonderful photos, designs that inspire, and a layout to show how design comes from and influences daily life & objects.

This is a perfect coffee table book with lots of graphics inside, very minimal text though if that's what you are looking for. The outside cover is as beautiful as all of the images inside.

The pure design in this book is gorgeous and inspired. People throw around the word "genius" but they remain rare. This book has convinced me that Allegra Hicks belongs in that group.

Even rarer is the ability to convey one's design process to other people. Hicks' ability to do this makes the book a treasure for more than just the fabulous patterns and colors.

The book is a treasure and worth buying simply for the many brilliant designs it includes, and even more helpful if you're in a creative visual field and looking for inspiration.

The cover was bent when I received it. I'm sure it will straighten over time out once it's laying flat for a while, but it would have been nice to have received it in better condition since it's a new book.

I love this book, the photography is beautiful, sublime colours - I leave it open on a table in my house so I can enjoy the images all day. I originally borrowed it from the library and then just had to buy it. Inspiring.
