Certainly one of the better books about logos though it's worth saying that this is not a DIY title aimed at designers and full of learned chat from professionals about creating that perfect mark. This is 776 pages stuffed full of the real thing. The back cover says over six thousand, the Taschen website says seven thousand logos are in these pages. I'll settle for a lot and the strength of the book is that these are all practical solid designs that work and many of them have been around for years. If any of the Fortune 500 have logos I bet they are in this book. The coverage is world-wide but the majority are from North America and Europe.

They are arranged alphabetically and a nice touch was starting with numbers before the A selection. The first logo is 007 then 1c, 2wire, 3Com, 3-in-one etc. Throughout the book there is an average of eight to a page with probably half in color and another nice touch is that they are all beautifully printed, no badly screened edges here. Each logo gets brief caption like this: Fisher-Price; Mattel Inc; USA,1984; [Toys, Games & Models] and many get a designer credit too. There is an additional caption feature, a little arrow beside every company that had it's logo in the short movie Logorama. The book's author is Ludovic Houplain and he was the co-director of the short, a frame from it is used on the book's wraparound cover. The back of the book has a huge thirty page company and designer index. Pentagram leads the pack with fifty-nine marks, followed by Landor Associates with forty-four and Lippincott have thirty-three.

If you like looking at logos and appreciating the thought that goes into these designs this well printed title is a bargain. Other publishers would most likely have made this into a two book special but Taschen (as usual) delivers the goods.

There's not much to expect when you are buying a book with logos. It's simple to flip through. There's a good variety of designs. For the price I was quite happy with the quality of the print. The paper and ink were high quality and help display the logos at their fullest.

This book is a compilation of thousands of logos, alphabetically arranged. It is not complete, but it is comprehensive. A Taschen Publishing title, it has that company's always excellent quality. One thing I did not not glean before ordering is the sheer size of the volume - it is a very thick book. Overall, a wonderful browsing book - you will not find a better compilation anywhere.

This is a big book both weight wise and thickness. Paper is thick to the point you'll swear two pages are stuck together. Everything is printed beautifully and it's truly amazing the amount of logos it has. If you're a graphic designer I can't recommend you purchase this enough.

If you're a graphic designer and if you want a very complete logo book or just simply love logos, THIS IS THE BOOK DEFINITELY!!! this is the most complete logo book I've ever seen, it's beautiful in all sides. I was very happy when I receive it and I took one complete day to view it in detail and when I finished I wanted to review it again. This is an amazing book, one of the best that I have sincerely.

well designed, well printed coprehensive book allows you to compare various logos from everywhere
problem with this kind of books is to update because logos change and change thanks to branding consultants
