I received this book as a gift, and while it's certainly beautiful, I'm surprised no one has mentioned the quality of the written copy. The introduction and image captions are very strangely written- the writer doesn't quite seem to understand English grammar, but appears determined to construct complex sentences and use flowery language. You can tease out what they mean, but the writing is distractingly bad. If you just want to flip through the pictures for visual inspiration this book is fine, but it leaves something to be desired as a textbook.

This was one of two books by Victionary i purchased and i love it! As i already wrote in an other review - it's a great source for graphic designers and just a pleasure to hold in hands. I really can't wait to purchase other books by Victionary. It was a great surprise - price=quality!

I was sold on this book once I thumbed through it.
This is the book to get if you are a huge fan of the retro style.
I'm more into the timeless look. However, as a graphic designer, it's hard to ignore other trends in our industry.
Packed with great examples, Flashback delivers and adds a nice contrast to my book shelf of swiss graphic design.
