Recommends it for: novice graphic designers
Shelves: graphic-design
More/less a compendium of "best practice" layouts. If you're an inexperienced or novice graphic designer or have had graphic design thrust upon you ("But I'm a developer!") then this is a great book to keep handy; if you're a little more experienced, it's still a good one to keep around for quick ideas ("...and the mock-up is due tomorrow morning 10am sharp!") or to loan out to your apprentices.

Typical use case for this book: your creative energy is low and you have a looming deadline on a serie
small size, good idea springboard, samples of several different related designs for the same project
Speaking of layout... this book is hard to read. There's a reason most art (etc) books are on the larger side. This one is quite small. The idea is a good one, but there's little information actually offered or conveyed per piece.
When I'm brainstorming or low on inspiration, I love to have my "index" books handy.

Very helpful when I was stuck on how something should flow in a project.
Another book on my desk at work to help jog creativity when it lapses.
