Reviews - What do customers think about Design Handbook: Concepts, Materials, Styles (Icons)?
Start here! Feb 2, 2007
This is one design book that is essential to own. There are sections on materials, movements, architecture, concepts and more. The introduction alone contains a concise synopsis of the evolution of design. From Bauhaus to Arts and Crafts, tubular steel to carbon fibre, ergonomics to brand identity, this handbook is packed with the building blocks of product, spacial and graphic design. The only drawback is that it is organized in alphabetical rather than chronological order. To remedy this, they have highlighted similar topics throughout the book to cross reference. At $10, this is a sure thing and makes a great gift. A++
