Reviews - What do customers think about Book-Art: Innovation in Book Design?
Nice books weird design Jun 24, 2008
The books contained in this book are fabulous, but the book itself has some ugly pages with unresolved maximalism. With empty interviews, brief explanations on the books and boring graphics I can't give it more than a 3.
