Reviews - What do customers think about Basics Illustration: Thinking Visually (Basic Illustration)?
Thinking visually, but not typographically Aug 4, 2008
This book is OK for inspiration thanks to its illustrations, but not very good for reading. The type setting is so poor, that your eyes get tired after reading one page. The author was thinking visually, but somehow forgot, that most books are meant to be read. This one will end up just to flip through. So, if you are thinking about buying it, look around, there are better books. Masters of Poster Design by John Foster is well worth the money for example.
