Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I teach interaction design at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences (Hogeschool Rotterdam). I found this book to be a perfect introduction, collection and practical starting point for icon and pictogram design. This topic is hugely important within the discipline of interaction design, and it is difficult to find broadly-oriented resources. I found this to be one of the best, along with the work of Paul Mijksenaar. Especially useful is section 2, about the nuts and bolts of pictogram concept and design, including grid, format, cultural conventions, abstraction, and environment (where the pictogram will be used).

Format: Paperback
This book gives us the exact amount of information to understand the importance of the proper use of pictogrmas in daily life.
It also reproduces the pictograms of the Olympc Games since Berlin 1936 , that gives the reader the chance to compare the evolution of the graphic design of the visual systems used during the history of these games.
I recommend this book to all designers and architects who are concerned with the construction of a better urban space, in which communication graphics play a relevant role.

Useful book. Good addition to a design library.
Solid examples. Simplifies semiotics in accessible way.
Wish there was an American equivalent with US examples.

Format: Paperback
There should be an accompanying CD with the images included as vector art. As is, it's merely visually interesting, but fairly useless as a production tool.
