From the Back Cover
In May 2012, bestselling author Neil Gaiman stood at a podium at Philadelphia’s University of the Arts to deliver the commencement address. For the next nineteen minutes he shared his thoughts about creativity, bravery, and strength: he encouraged the students before him to break rules and think outside the box. Most of all, he encouraged the fledgling painters, musicians, writers, and dreamers to make good art.
This book, designed by renowned graphic artist Chip Kidd, contains the full text of Gaiman’s inspiring speech. Whether bestowed upon a young artist beginning his or her creative journey, or given as a token of gratitude to an admired mentor, or acquired as a gift to oneself, this volume is a fitting offering for anyone who strives to make good art.

So I wonder, how come the design of this book was so poorly executed? Someone needs to give this book a redesign and do it some justice. After all, the title is "Make Good Art" - this is a bad example of that for sure!
I can see if they were going for bold and perhaps quirky, but this is plain ugly and in no way allowed me to fluently read the speech that has so much impact on it's own. The contrast of the colors, arrangement of text, changing font sizes, is incredibly distracting.
I do not recommend this product, I recommend simply watching the speech until they redesign the book!
