In terms of the book design, the pages are printed in interesting colors and in contemporary fonts to reflect the "modern/edgy" aesthetic of the book topic. Keeping in mind that this book is from 2006, it already looks a little bit dated. In addition, the publishing date means that the content doesn't address newer popular media like 3D printing, but the artistic shift it's addressing is more present than ever.
This serious, academic book was helpful to me as an art student because it presents these unconventional creations and weighs the implications of what its place is (if it has any) in the world of art without making any solid value judgement about it.
