    Great Reference and Idea Refresher!

    If you work in the art industry you know that sometimes finding inspiration can be boring. Perhaps you feel like you've done all you can to your work but it doesn't feel right. This book is affordable and a way to just freshen your idea pallet by flipping through it.

    Just Get It!

    This book is for anyone who gets those pesky designers cramps and brain freezes. It covers a multitude of subjects for text and graphics. I am an instructor and this little, powerful book will be on the corner of my desk for my students to fight over. Also, I'm not afraid that it will get tattered and torn, it's got this cool, durable plastic cover that will never wear out. This is the first book that I've bought sight, unseen and I am not disappointed. Just Get It! PS Thanks Jim Krause!
