Format: Paperback
I agree with the 2 previous reviewers except that the mini edition mentioned by one is overwhelmingly crowded with small pictures, many of which can't be read and don't show the completed project in its entirety. I assume the photography is the same in the larger copy, but perhaps larger and less tightly packed for easier absorption.

I want to see details and complete projects to see how things tie together, I would also appreciate background information on the choices made, who they were for, what techniques were used and easier access to typeface names. For instance, were all these grungy type treatments being used to sell skateboards, and grunge-rock CDs? Or did someone try them to sell retirement condos?

It's quite of a shame when a book about design is poorly designed itself. The layout is ok: each page features 1 to 3 projects and the way they use type. On top of each image you find the number of the project, name of the agency and the agency's country. But if you want the name of the fonts used (what I thought the book was all about), you must look at the index at the end. And on top of that, the index does not even present the projects by number but by agency's name which make it for a busy search. A shame since the projects presented are interesting, make for a good source of inspiration even if they lack a bit more explanations.
One of this book's main advantage is its low price.

Many many pages of different type treatments, colorful pages, great for inspiration. But beware! There is another edition of this book, smaller in dimension, without compromising the content or size of the photographs, and it's half the price!!

A good book, and if you're interested in paying double for extra white space, this is your book.
