Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Ironically the book itself is poorly designed (I got the paperback). The glossy paper makes reading slightly difficult. The glossy full black page will chronicle your fingerprints. It leaves a few examples of compositions with white negative space to float on the pages' own white space. Images also show through the page adding grey tones to the images. Unnecessary vertical black rules randomly appear in the margins.
5 stars for spreading knowledge to help change the design world. 2 stars for the book's physical presentation.

Jan Tschichold scrive molto bene di grafica come pochi sono riusciti a fare.
Da evitare se non si conosce la storia Europea o non si ha idea del contesto culturale in cui l'autore ha scritto e riveduto il suo capolavoro. Dovrebbe essere obbligatorio in tutte le scuole di progettazione italiane.
