You need this book if you want to understand where our design-obsessive culture originated. Even if you don't give a rat's ass, if you take any kind of enjoyment from visual and conceptual aesthetics, you still need this.
It is great to flip through, the ultimate coffee table book. But suprisingly, there is just as much emphasis placed on text and context.
Even more surprisingly, it is reasonably priced.
Peter Saville has enormous talent and is unique in that he's not strictly a designer, not strictly an artist.
too much to early
i hope it doesnt make me give it a star. if i have to give a star, before going a little more in depth... well, then ill give five. but let it be know, i havent yet made it past page two. guess ill have to learn a little ... i dunno what language it even is. gonna have to work a little to get through this one, my curiosity is dragging me, through all the distractions n walls around me, gives me a headache sometimes, but the language looks curious, the words. misplaced to my understanding... for the moment. translations in due
anyhow, just so you know. left the five cause i had too, not that the book is interesting or anything, just letting you know.
bah, it made me give stars. i guess whomever made this sight...
didnt allow for under review. theres some decent material in the dvd as well. but thats not here, nor there, is it?
theres about four tangents that i can think of off the top of my head right now... to many options to readers, means this is trash. or not, maybe a playground for some damn collage prof with a red fetish in language
im pushing send, n probably waisting everybodies time, seeing how, this, isnt even technically a rating of anysort. this is only page one.
