This was a little rougher than I expected. The outside cover is hard so it wears easily, but the inside pages were in good shape. There were lots of images and examples of design.

Just received this and being that there are no other reviews, I'd like to input my two cents. First off the construction of the book is pretty sturdy, was surprised that there is a bit of interesting copy to turn your mind instead of purely images. I have not finished this book, but pretty good so far.
