Book Review #4

I picked up this book recently and read it on the plane. Adrian Shaughnessy is a British guy that started the design firm Intro, and now writes in all of our favorite design publications about the subject. This particular book is a quick but insightful read. I really like his tone and honesty, and his advice seems reasonable to follow. The book was designed by Bibliotheque, I like how the table of contents is on the cover, although lately I've been seeing that here and there. The Tiffany Blue book has an Intro written by Stefan Sagmeister, and each chapter is followed by interviews with some pretty well known designers like Neville Brody. It kind of makes you want to start your own design shop...which he doesn't suggest you do alone...Hmm...
