Format: Paperback
I think that every graphitti artist should read this book before defacing a wall. It was written by the designer of the logo for Sun Microsystems and a few others. It is a really facinating book, it shows you how to think the same way as the author, and how to design text that can be read as one word right-side up, and as another up-side down. I highly recommend it.

We actually picked this book up from a local used book dealer last summer. We had no idea it was still in print! Hooray! Scott Kim's art has kept our family entranced. Our son, who is 8 and obsessed with math, loves this book. It is one of his favorite bedtime "reads". It rarely strays from his bedside table.

This book is a must have for anyone involved in any of the creative arts. After reading this book you will never see things the same way. I first bought in the 1980s. I've revisited it many times. This copy was a gift to my 28 year old daughter who is a journalist and a writer.

Scott Kim's work amazes me without ceasing. I can't fathom how he has been able to produce these creations. The bar is set so very high for the rest of us.
