Graphically this book is beautiful, and the quality superb.
C. Talbott
They are intended to add to the overall design of the book, but I miss words, typography, but also just human sentences that explain the work.

... I am still wading through the book it has wonderful artwork but an aweful lot of the pages are poorly shot photo snaps or simplistic illustrations. They are intended to add to the overall design of the book, but I miss words, typography, but also just human sentences that explain the work. Alot of eyecandy but almost a letdown as far as content goes. Still a wonderfull purchase ...

Experimentation is the word and the work. Usage of vector lines and beautiful photographs in the design creates a visually pleasing, but a cold feel to it as well. The images are intriguing and invites the viewer to look closer. The book is a presentation of cold, minimalist vector illustrations, typogrpahic design, photography, architecture, exhibit design--pretty much feels and seems like mishmash of all kinds of interesting looking, experimentations in design. It is a bit overwhelming to look through everything and I am not sure whether the information in the book is well structured. If you like looking at photos and design work, but are not really concerned about reading into it, you will love this book as a source of inspiration. I like this book, but I think it would be even better if their experimental processes were explained better using text as image. The book does feel too processed and overly edited especially for presenting experimental art work which indicates (intentionally or unintentionally) the experiements are over- calculated and high-risk taking is not involved.

Great production, lots to look at. A visual experience thin on substance. If you're into the fine art of design you will enjoy it. Think of it as a coffee table book with little commercial relevance.

One of the most valuable purchases I have ever made. This book is absolutely fantastic, just a wealth of inspiration and full of ideas that can be used as beginning reference for your own projects. Graphically this book is beautiful, and the quality superb. One of the best parts of this book is that it shows process, from concept to gathering of information to analysis to synthesis to final product. As an architecture student I have found this book to be incredibly useful, and flat out a pleasure to look through after a long day. Completely worth the investment.

Some may not get the design of the layout, but most GOOD designers will appriciate the use of space. Definatly a good book for any Graphic Design libriary. Much like Bruce Mau's "Lifestyle" it talks about the true meaning of design as an artform and a way of life. Probably best of all, it discusses the importance of using unconfentional ideas and incorporating them into your design work.

A white bible from the holy temple. This is pure visual communication milestone. The book has its own concept&attitude as a printed material as good as its contents. Not a collected annual. "Future has no script" The Noise Four is the script...
