An interesting read for any print designers. This book has a brilliant combination of both very good examples and illustrations of different formats and technical information and terms on the formats and how they work. There is some lovely work in here, some of it I had seen before and some of it was new. There is work by Frost Design, Hat-Trick, Madethought, Pentagram, Rose Design, Sagmeister and Why Not Associates, ranging from books to posters, brochures to marketing objects…
