Really solid coffee table book. Each section is rather short (between 5 and 10 paragraphs per section). The size of the book is daunting, but the short chapters are encouraging. It is full of fascinating images (and the glossy paper they use smells divine!).

Замечательная книга, подробно рассказывающая об эволюции дизайна.
Жаль только, что на новое (наше) время выделили всего лишь одну главу и мало что осветили (хотя после 2000 года самый пик пошел из-за новых технологий, развития веб-дизайна как такового — о нем вообще упомянули вкратце).

P.s. По истории дизайна меня очень порадовали лекции от openedu.ru, в той же приятной и понятной манере мне все объяснили и показали.

I think this book is mind-revealing. It's like finding something precious inside a rusty box named "architectural student compartment" in my small and empty brain. So, if you once a design-related student and have lost your passion, try read this book. You will find delicious super-food for your rusty designer body and served in a bite size. Enjoy it.
