The only problem I have is the art direction/design of this book. For a book on art direction it feels rather dated, 2002-2005. It was a bit difficult reading it with so much novelty design presented, I would have been happy with some nice swiss design, you can't go wrong with that.
This book is filled with a vast amount of knowledge and discussions that make it a must buy for any student, art director or even designer that wishes to know more. This is a great read. Good job yet again Mr. Heller and Veronique Vienne. You managed to write a book that covers all bases, especially for editorial.
