Simplistic and beautiful, Emotion as Promotion, surpassed my expectations. Rick Valicenti's brilliance, humor, and talent clearly shine in this entertaining and thought-provoking work. I recommend this big beautiful book to anyone, especially those interested in design.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Of all the famous graphic designer vanity books, Rick's is the least pretentious because he actually does the work - He's the man. Nice and thick for the money, good volume/quantity of dead trees.

Format: Hardcover
Flip through this journal once and you will find it provocative, insightful and entertaining. Valicenti's talent and dexterity is impressive as is his curiosity and almost conceited thirst for exploration.

Sit in the park reading it carefully, you will find the most compelling portions of the book are those describing thirst failures in detail. Salvation lies here for the reader, both designer and client.
