Design and Art is an indispensable guide to an an age-old rivalry that has now, as Alex Coles demonstrates, become a productive stimulus to invention and speculation.

The book I bought was printed on poor quality paper, like newsprint. I had borrowed a copy from the library that was on nice thick white paper. Obviously it's not a big deal because it's just paper, and the content is the same, but it does affect readability. For novels I don't care about the quality of the paper, but for reading anything heady delivery makes a difference. The pages of my copy are printed on thin sallow paper that makes the text behind it noticeable, and distracting. It prevents a crisp read, and my eyes get tired. I also noticed that the nice copy is printed and bound in China and the poor quality one is printed in Slovenia. I just might return my copy to figure out how to get the better quality copy.

It just came across so incredibly pretentious that it made it easier for me to turn my nose up at it.

I like the delivery time. I can not say anything else on the book since it was a present for my son, and I did not read it.

I have only started this book, but it seems to be very in depth look at the intersections between art and design. The typography is also well done.
