5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL!, Dec 13 2002
By 
Ryan Mecum (Cincinnati, Ohio) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Graphically Speaking: A Visual Lexicon for Achieving Better Designer-Client Communication (Hardcover)
This book was given to me by a friend. Having studied graphic design for many years, I receive many books such as this from friends. However, none of the graphic design books I have on my shelves are near as lovely as this piece of art. Each page of this book seems as if months were spent on that page layout alone. The dedication and passion behind this graphics is alone worth the cover price. What Buchanan has done with this visual lexicon is simply this, she has broken down graphic art into it's purest forms. Then, she shows us lovely examples of each form in some spreads. For example, she has a "minimal chapter" that sums up on two pages what took me three years to finally learn. This book is a masterpiece, and if you are looking for a lovely book that shows you the different art forms that make up the many sides of graphic arts, this is both your starting place and finish line.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a guide for dealing with clients!, Nov. 29 2002

Ms. Buchanan has produced a gem here. An excellent guide to communicating with clients (never easy) in the graphic design arena. It's not only a beautifully designed book with excellent photography, realistic examples and trade secrets - this book gives the reader advice and information on client interaction and making sure you both are on the same path. A must for every graphic designer.

5.0 out of 5 stars What can I say??, March 6 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Graphically Speaking: A Visual Lexicon for Achieving Better Designer-Client Communication (Hardcover)
This book is full of beautiful examples, all in full color. Like it says it is a VISUAL Lexicon. Visual being the key word. It is not full of fluff like a lot of books. Graphic Designers are visual people. This is a wonderful book and I will be sure to buy anything that was written by Lisa in the future. Love it!
