The black and white printing lends itself to the elegant and crisp presentation of the publication. Symbols are not obscure drawings, but concise graphic representations.
For those interested in the deeper meaning of symbols (not simply their aesthetic appeal), explanations of symbol origin are provided alongside; similar or equivalent symbols are cross-referenced with each other.
An excellent source for any designer seeking to add symbolism to his/her work without the frills.
While the classification scheme is amazing, and very well thought out, the actual content is rather below what I expected.
