Great cover, great contents.

Christophe Szpajdel's logo designs are fantastic, and this collection is worth having if you like his style. I leaf through it when I'm not feeling metal or grim enough. One must maintain.

The logos are grouped more or less by their genre, or, more specifically, by photographs of the natural scenes that inspired the calligraphy. In terms of additional notes and words from Christophe Szpajdel, there is none. It's just the art and the photos. At the back of the book there's a helpful index if you're looking for a certain band. It's a good size book, and there are plenty of logos to go through.

Great book but not a hardcover. Dec 28 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love the book but am a bit pissed that I paid a little more for it on here because it said it was hardcover when it is not. Its a softcover that is made to look like a hardcover. I'm guessing they don't actually make this in a hardcover version. Just wanted to warn everyone.

Well I'll be damned... May 1 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had no idea how prolific Christophe Szpajdel was prior to seeing so much of his work laid out so beautifully in this collection. One look at this book and you will never look at a black metal logo as unreadable tree root font ever again. Wonderfully inspiring.

Breath Taking Dec 9 2010
By Fulton Hawk - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Christophe's work is iconic and this volume of it is epic. Page after page of hand crafted brilliance. It would be short sighted to say this is only a "Death Metal" logo book. Christophe's Art Deco and Art Nouveau work is equally amazing. I've purchased the book on 4 separate occasions for other illustrators. A must have in any art book collection.
The Book is Awesome; the construction is not. May 3 2014

Don't be fooled by the beautiful gold lettering and faux-whatever texturing. The cover and spine are like cardboard thin and you have to treat the book fairly delicately.

On the plus side the content is great. It's easy to underestimate the number of logos within but there's a lot. Like a lot a lot.
