Item description for Visible Signs (Advanced Level) by David Crow...
Semiotics---the study of signs and sign systems---has become part of the curriculum of most art schools, and this accessible, visually outstanding introduction strikes the perfect balance between theory and practice. By examining text and image in advertising, as well as "high art" versus "popular culture," it reveals the difference between signs (such as a word or picture) and signifiers (the concept or object to which it refers).

A must have for advertisers and artists May 15, 2007
If you are into methods of marketing and how symbols and words play on each other then this book is for you. I really enjoyed all the images that came along with each chapter. The book is laid out well, divided clearly with each chapter so that it's easy to follow. Definitely a steal through this site.
