"Elam has written a well-organized survey of the basics of understanding the grid. The book acts as a course guide... Grid Systems strips the confusion from the mystery of designing with a grid... will surely become a required textbook in typography classes everywhere. " --Be a Design Group
"The grid can appear complex, cumbersome, and rigid at times for young designers and students. Grid Systems challenges these notions with Elam's down to earth approach." --Speak Up, January 10, 2007
