This book has amazing signs and symbols of all kinds... hazard symbols, coats of arms, you name it! It has everything from old fashioned to modern signs and symbols. It is like a clip art book, but the images are a lot better quality and all of them are on a CD that the book comes with, so you can easily download the images. I recommend this book, plus it is very helpful for graphic design students. But remember, do not use these images illegally!
I disagree with the previous reviewer Jun 28, 2006
I think this book is a good resource for any graphic designer. Yes, you may be able to get some of the symbols elsewhere, but it can be a great source of inspiration and illustrative elements above and beyond basic symbols. For the price this is a welcome addition to my design resource library. Making use of one graphic from the book more than covers the cost of the book. - Jeff Fisher, writer of bLog-oMotives and "Logo Notions" on CreativeLatitude.com
Very basic and rough drawings. Mar 10, 2006
Infact this one desrves only one star. This book is (almost) worthles for a professional designer. There are many good fonts out there (free as well) which have much better symbol characters. The symbols in this collection is old, incomplete, not standard. There are no airport symbols. The cars used at the traffic symbols can only be seen at museums. There is nothing creative in this collection. A clever graphic designer can find better symbols easily and for free. Pepin pres says that you can use the cd with many software but there are no vector based formats in ANY of their CD collections including this one. I think this site.com too should add this comment about vector based files too because the book introductions are misleadng.
