This was another book intended for a college class; the contents seemed self-evident. I have had other design courses, so to be fair, I should just say this book is a very basic level and rather boring to get through. I would like to think good design should be enjoyable no matter what level you are at - the pedestrian layout didn't help. Save your money - better to take students to an art gallery and discuss why design works and why it doesn't.

The book is written for beginners; spoken in a very pleasant way. It gives plenty of examples and is easy to understand. Additional source may be needed to understand the primary and secondary colors in light and in print.
It's not a hard text to understand.

My daughter needed this book for one of her interior design courses. The campus bookstore nor any others in town had the book. Very happy to find it on Amazon!
