Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"

Not only is Band ID the cleanest and most comprehensive collection of music logos I've ever come across, it also made me stop and think for the first time about a number of things - things like the true relation between a band's logo, its music and its identity, how a band's logo can endear or villify them to fans, and who the hell actually designed some of these things. This book's got it all.." &mash;turntable.com
