Format: Paperback
So I just picked this book up at B&N after not finding it on amazon (thought it was "freeware"). Anyway, I learn by taking it apart. My first car was a Honda Prelude, and I didn't know a single thing about cars or engines until the damn thing broke on me a few times. After a full head rebuild and an engine swap I can tell you a lot about any honda. Back to the book- It works on this same concept. As a designer we always see things and ask ourselves/each other "how in the f*** do they do that?" And prior to this book I would google endlessly through tons of different illustrator tutorials. With this book I can find something similar in it and pull up the actual file. And through a little reverse engineering figure it out.

I'm on the first page, first file and I've already had about 10 questions answered. I seriously think other reviewers are downplaying this and keeping it as their own little secret! shame shame! just kidding. As far as all of the vector elements, fonts, and stock photo's I really don't think that is the main purpose of the book. Again, it's a good way to have that little honda engine blown up in front of you.

I understand this isn't a new concept for design books but it's new to me and I'm sure as hell going to buy any other book like this, and highly suggest this one unless you went to a good art school and already know everything ;)

Great concept and good execution, and decent range of artists/styles. Vector elements can be broken down/ungrouped so lots of versatility, and photos are good too. Fonts are just OK - not as helful as I'd hoped.

Generally a good value-for-money clip art resource.

I agree this is a good value for the money you spend. files are inspirational as well as well as useful. not "must have", but a "fun to have".
