Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Lars Muller (the publisher) is one of my few go-to sources for specialist design and architecture volumes that are immaculately, capital "D" Designed.

Imperfect Health is another quality piece of work from Muller: Sparkling layouts, gobs of illustrations, tight and interesting binding, good paper stock, very usable playfulness in the typography, etc.

That said, it is a specialist text (and accompanied a larger exhibition). However, if you find the topic interesting--or are at least intrigued by the topic--the articles' explorations (these vary widely) coupled with the Muller design make this a worthy addition to your architectural/design knowledge and library shelf.
