This book is a must-have for graphic designers. Even the cover is inspirational. I'm dying to implement the soft hardcover with deboss on a future project. This is the real deal. You won't be disappointed.
great logo resource Mar 10, 2008
First of all great looking book, a vinyl crackle embossed finish with matching orange printed page ends. The great thing about the opening section is a selection of case studies that is broken down into: The Assignment, Development, Solution, and Application with words and visuals. The remaining 2/3 is what you would expect a bible of great logo design. Some pages are devoted to a one designer as well, and some logos get more attention and are given a whole page of display. A bit like the Los Logo series but not as cramped full, a bit more room to breath. My mate took one flick through when I got it and ordered it, a very good book.
Never received the book Jan 19, 2008
I really would like to say something about that book but, I'm still waiting for it.
Wonderful feel, even if the grammar is a little off Jan 9, 2008
This book is just wonderful to hold. The soft leather cover and the bright orange page edges are great. I love the case studies showing the development of various logos, and there are over 200 pages of logos to flip through for inspiration. As someone else noted, the English isn't quite perfect. While reading, I thought "This sounds like it was written by someone with English as a second language." Then I flipped to the front and saw it was made in Hong Kong. It's still readable, and really- we just want to see the logos anyway!
Awesome reference Nov 4, 2007
It's so great to find great logo books such as Logology! This is one of the few that I have found worth buying. It's full of very progressive styles and refreshing ideas. You'll love the orange leather cover with various debossed logos. Very fun book to have on your shelf or table. Some of the text on the back cover and within was written a little interestingly, but I guess it gives this book a little character. Anyways, I would recommend this book to anyone to wants to break away from the mainstream corporate identity logos and be a little more progressive.
