Definitely an impressive spread of innovative publications. The author's introduction page 12-15 is absolutely worth the whole book. The rest devotes one or two spreads each to "brochures , catalogs, documents." "Documents" in this sense is a rather inclusive term.

The cross-section of publication represented in this work, however, seems to be limited to certain clients – art galleries, printing houses, fashion shows, art schools, etc. I'd hoped to find a more universal representation, an amalgam that showed the broad/ugly side (leisure industry) as well. I'm afraid these examples are not ones that I can apply.

Also, the cover came loose before i'd read a sig. Not the author's fault but still aggravating.
