Sean Hall did a good job of choosing images for the book's content. Every other page has a good quality image on it & I was very surprised at how well made this book is. The pages are thick and sturdy, with a nice finish. There are new vocab words to learn nearly every other page. It's full of useful information, especially for anyone writing about semiotics.

No matter what you are doing in the design world there is no definite on what means what. You can do everything this book shows and be hated amongst designers or loved. personal preference only.

More of a pleasant, decorative "coffee-table" type book with a little bit of introductory information than a serious guide to anything.
