I really enjoyed this book. It had a historical overview, organized sections, and lush color photographs. It's a *great* book to browse through looking for inspiration; there's a totally unique or fun-n-strange idea at least every few pages. There were a few things which knocked it down to four stars, however:

The tips (and most of the text in general) were next to useless; their screen printing tip, for example, described the process with about as much detail as a dictionary entry.

A wider variety of shirts would have been good for some areas; the "counter culture" and corporate "logo" sections were bursting with material, but the "historical" sections seemed to fast forward from the early 20th to today, with a brief stop at the 60s and 80s. The "Design" section had some of the most interesting shirts of all, yet was a smaller chapter towards the end. They could have put in a wider variety of t-shirts, and could have found room for them by cutting out many of the repetitive examples (they had EVERY World of Warcraft t-shirt, even if it was just two different characters in the same pose as characters from the previous t-shirt.

Still, I'd recommend this to anyone interested in t-shirt making, or just fashion in general.

This is a must for those who are looking for history of t-shirt art and be inspired by it.
I recommend this book to everyone.
