This is a book about 500+ pages of contemporary graphic and logo designs. That is pretty much about many design books-catalogues in short.

But this one is about freedom. Yes, freedom of thought, freedom of style, freedom of exploration and paradigm breaking. There are tons of logo and corporate branding books out there but this book series stands out. Presented collections of logos are hip, crude and sometimes provocative. The book celebrates graphics design as it is rather then doing something permanent. It aims at the everyday design: logos for an exhibition, a local retail or online radio station.

Content of the book is divided into categories, which are: Corporate, Culture, Design, Fashion, Motion/ Games/ Media, Music, Art/ Unclassifiable, Political and Sports. Although it could be even better if there were some details on presented graphics, because it is not obvious where is real logos, concepts, presentations or just random graphics as they scattered all together.

Such a wide range of current creativity is a great place to begin your new graphic project and to get you thinking in a variety of ways. This is a great brainstorming tool. The variety of styles helps promote new ideas and concepts. The format of the book is also working on its usability. It is bound and stitched with thick hardboard cover and has a top printing quality. This book was made to be used long time.

If you haven't got any book on logo design yet, then it will be a great to start with. But if you are in search of a breakdowns of logo designs with deep case studies, as I mentioned before, this one is not a "how to" book.

The title says it all. It's a great and beautiful book, but if you have Tres Logos don't expect new references in graphics and styles.
If you have Los Logos and Dos Logos or none of them, LL4 is a totally must buy!

Congrats to Amazon! I live in Brazil and this one was the fastest delivery yet.

Great book. AWesome resource for logo, typography and all-around inspiration. Book was bigger than I thought. One of the best $40 investments a designer can make.

I own all four of the Logos books, but the 4th edition is the best so far. Full of contemporary and relevant examples. I'd call it my cheat sheet but it's way too long -- something like 500 pages -- it's more of an encyclopedia anyway.

Nice iridescent vinyl texture cover too. Brilliant!

If you are looking for heaps of ideas for type, logos, vector illustrations, and inspiration, then this book is it. Its pretty funky, with heaps of ideas for your own designs whether it be corporate or surf and skate. Its fun just flicking through it.
