5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Greg Morkovin on November 11, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Wow! What a great book. I've never before seen such a comprehensive collection of contemporary signs, symbols and labels as this. They all look to be extremely accurate and well organized. There are interesting background essays on the many categories of symbols, such as the history and development of Braille, and a complete alphabetical index of all 4,811 images. I highly recommend this meticulously produced reference for your design (or any other) library.

Format: Hardcover
Good resource book for design. But, even better- you can get 4811 icons/signs you see in the book on a CD as editable vector EPS files, all royalty free. The publisher, [...] sells it for two hundred fifty usd. I haven't seen it on Amazon yet.

I use this book as a reference when I am designing icons. I wish it were more thorough, particularly for traffic symbols, but it's better than any other book that I've found.
