2-0 out of 5 stars An okay book but not worth the current second hand prices!
DBI gives a pleasant overlook of the branding process illustrated with various examples. It is however not a guidline to creating/building/maintaining a brand, so in this the title is misleading.
5-0 out of 5 stars A great reference
This book serves as a great reference when developing brand identity. From what I have read about it, it truly seems to deserve the privilidge of being a definitive reference on the subject.

3-0 out of 5 stars Feels like a textbook for graphic designers
I was able to get a few great nuggets of information to use in my seminar for salon owners about the keys to a strong logo.There is a lot of information that illustrates successful big business uses of color and font.I think it is more useful to someone who helps others create their brand than for the individual business.Aura Mae, author of Get Some Hairapy - a hairdresser's prescription for happiness. ...

Editorial Review

This lovely, well-written book is concerned foremost with creating beautiful typography and is essential for professionals who regularly work with typographic designs. Author Robert Bringhurst writes about designing with the correct typeface; striving for rhythm, proportion, and harmony; choosing and combining type; designing pages; using section heads, subheads, footnotes, and tables; applying kerning and other type adjustments to improve legibility; and adding special characters, including punctuation and diacritical marks.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a must read
You won't see many bad reviews on this book and the reason is simple. It is an extremely good book. I do alot of web design and this book brings you back to all that was great in book typography. Very inspiring read. If you love graphic design you will probably love this book as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bringhurst brings his game
As a beginning typographer in art school, this book is invaluable to me. Everytime I have a question about something typographic I can refer to the book for an answer and reasoning. Anyone from a beginner to an expert typographer should own a copy of this book. Bringhurst creates a lucid world of typography that makes it easy to read while having layers of information. A great buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Generating Passion for Typography
My friends give me a hard time becuase they have found me on more than one occasion reading this book at weird times. I read it in the bathroom. I read it instead of working on papers for my elective classes. This book stimulates me to design and create. It ignited and continues to kindle the passion for design and typography that burns inside me. If you've read Strunk and White's Elements of Style (for grammar) and enjoyed it, and are a designer then this book is for you. One of the best references I have. The author's passion for typography is clear, and it has inspired my passion as well.

3-0 out of 5 stars Wow! Maybe I'm scary!
I really looked forward to ordering this book after reading the blurb about it & couldn't wait to read it when it arrived. The author is absolutely gorgeous & looks fabulous in the pictures, but after reading it I felt as though it was intended fora much older person than myself (I'm in my 40"s). She essentially says not to wear a bathing suit unless you're actually going to swim, hide all skin as it's aged & crepey, cover up - you're not your daughter! In checking to see what part of the country she's from I discovered she lives in California like me,where a lot of the women are in very good shape without horrible skin & hopefully look very attractive showing a little skin somewhere.

5-0 out of 5 stars At last!
Tired of being called a Baby Boomer or worse? Christine Schwab has given us a new name that is everything we aspire to be: fun, sassy, fashion savvy. We are Grown-up Girls! In her latest book, Christine gives advice to the fashion-wary and applauds the fashion-aware with her message that it is possible to become ageless rather than older.This inspiring book is so much more than a list of 'dos and don'ts'. Another wonderful surprise-besides the practical advice, colorful layout, and fun photos- are the philosophical gems Christine shares. A must read for any woman, whether she is 'grown-up' or not!

5-0 out of 5 stars FABULOUS!!
This is the greatest fashion/beauty book to come along in years.Christine Schwab is full of fresh and amazing ideas and she makes you feel like she's telling you about them over a cappuccino in her living room!It's a great read, full of new and interesting fashion/beauty ideas for the Grown Up Girl and also some tried and true advice that Christine has given us over the years on her many TV appearances (we can't hear these things enough girls!).But more than that, the book is full of honest and inspiring thoughts about life - life as a Grown Up Girl and life in general - all from someone who has seen so many sides of life and from such a unique perspective.After reading this book, I was so inspired to make positive changes - in my appearance and in my life!I highly recommend this for Grown Up Girls (and not-so-Grown Up Girls too!).A wonderful, wonderful book. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent insight for Seamstress
I had been searching through all of the sewing books I could find to learn more about the nature of fabric and fibers...and everything I could possibly want to know was here, and more. Absolutely fascinating. It is a textbook, but was written clearly enough that anyone with an interest in the area can easily understand it. I've been teaching classes to costumers and members of the local American Sewing Guild, who are equally impressed with the knowledge we got from this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Connecting Textiles and Science
I use this book as the text for teaching a basic textiles course for sophmores.This text provides a sound foundation for students understanding the textiles and the science foundations that are the base for predicting textile performance.Every line is packed with information; there is no fluff in this book.If you want to understand WHY textiles and textile products perform in specific ways, this is the book to buy. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Spectacular!
Actually, I am not a golfer.But I purchased this book as a Christmas present for my aunt and uncle who are recreational golfers. And spectacular is the word they both used to describe it.The photographs are beautiful and there is a short description of each place that is photographed.My aunt particularly liked that the descriptions were short.She said it was just enough information about each place.And now, maybe, they are planning to visit some of these places and play a round...

5-0 out of 5 stars Can't Go Wrong
This book was recommended as a Father's Day gift in a magazine and being that my Dad LOVES golf, I thought it was a sure thing.It ended up being way more than that.The book is beautiful!Don't tell anyone but it is way underpriced.It looks like a $50 coffee table book.My mom thought I had paid $80 to $100 for it.My Dad loves it so much that he displayed it on top of tv in the living room. He was giddy to find many courses in the book that he had played.The only downside I could see was that my Dad may find numerous golf courses around the world that he now feels he has to go and play. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Less is most definitely more
In this astonishing book, which is filled with wonderful ideas, as well as being a beautiful coffee table book, we are granted an inside look at a truly new concept in home design in our age of teardowns and mega-mansions, a concept that smaller can be more satisfying than larger, if properly done. Here we are presented with something seldom viewed these days, how to make a house a home. There is something for every taste herein, and it is even multi-cultural, with oriental viewpoints as well on both furniture and flow of the home. Spend some time with this excellent book to see how every size home can be made more personal and beautiful, no matter what the budget.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great as always!
Sarah books are a staple in my books of design collection. I refer to them frequently. She has a wonderful sense of design as it relates to organization, usefullness,and asthetically pleasing. I wish more designers and architects would use her sensibility and we would not be over run with all the hideous, vapid,mac mansions everywhere. I would reccommend all of her books without hesitation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Inside the Not So Big House

5-0 out of 5 stars Scary and sad
I bought this book because I do not want to hate Bush. As a recovering member of AA, I wanted to know more about him, because I doubt he has ever set foot into an AA meeting. If he had done so and truly grasped the concepts, he would not be doing the things he does.
1-0 out of 5 stars Justin Frank on the Couch
Well, first off, I have to admit to not having read the book, but I heard this nitwit on The Randi Rhodes Show this afternoon, and within about a minute I nearly lost control of the car I was laughing so hard.Something about the young G.W. Bush getting off torturing small animals and shoving hot pieces of steel up their rectums.But he's a famous doctor - who am I to question his diagnoses?
5-0 out of 5 stars Serious Work
This is not just your usual Bush bash - it is a serious work by a well respected professional. If you find The Toxic Texan's thoughts and actions inexplicable and want to make some sense of it all, read this book. This is probably the best book I have read on why/how this man operates. It explains why Bush cannot speak when talking about subjects requiring understanding or compassion - but he never gets it wrong when he's talkin' tough.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Art Quilt
Beautiful color plates.If you are an artist or quilter who prefers to emphasize color and design, then this book is invaluable for ideas and inspiration.Highly recommend for your library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Tremendously inspiring - gorgeous photography
I'm a weekend quilter - and love working with rich color.This is not only a coffee-table beautiful book but it inspires creative ideas far beyond normal quilting.You don't have to be a quilter to enjoy - the art is wonderful.And if you do quilt, this will inspire you to all sorts of radically new ideas.

5-0 out of 5 stars Recommended for needlecraft students, quilters & collectors.
Robert Shaw draws upon his impressive expertise to celebrate the traditional bed quilt as a needlecraft art form that is a creative, emotional, example of "form following function". His insightful text traces the transformation of the quilt from bed cover to displaypiece, the quilter from homemaker to academically trained artist, theworkshop from kitchen to studio, and the materials from simple to complex.The Art Quilt is superb survey of an art form grounded in tradition and, atthe same time, committed to originality and innovation. The works of suchsuperb contemporary quilters as Michael James, Yvonne Porcella, JuliaPfaff, Nancy Crow, and more than two hundred others, serve to illustratethe quilt as art -- and the art of the quilt. The Art Quilt is enhancedwith 300 full-color reproductions and numerous insightful sidebars ofimportant technical processes and leaders int he art quilt field. The ArtQuilt is highly recommended reading for needlecraft students, quilters,collectors, and popular culture enthusiasts. ... Read more

Now in it's third edition published in 2006 and brought up to date. This is the standard reference guide to the NCIDQ examination, but more than that this is an excellent reference book into designing the interior of a structure be it a house or a commercial building.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learnt invalueable lessons from this book.
Photoshop Elements 4.0 may not be as feature rich as Photoshop CS. But it packs more than enough punch to stand on its own. Scott Kelby clearly illustates this point in this book. The organization of this book is very helpful to jump specifically to a particular technique and use them. The teach by example model is very effective. A must have reference for anyone using Photoshop Elements 4.0.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!
I was extremely impressed with this book!You can go directly to the chapter you are interested in, but I read it cover-to-cover to not miss anything.Beautiful, clear illustrations of exactly what you need to do for all kinds of photo modifications, including stuff I would never have thought possible.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a great book!
Don't be scared away from buying this book because some reviewers here say, "It's not for beginners."True, it doesn't take you through the product menu by menu and tell you what each little tool or piece of functionality does.But if you want to learn the basics of photo editing (anything more advanced than the auto fix options)in Photoshop Elements 4, this is definitely a good book for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very very useful book
I have been using this book a lot, in the recent months, and I am finding it very useful. I am not *at all* an expert latex user, but I do have decent programming skills, and I usually use a computer for hours every day, so my IT skills are decent, overall. For writing technical documents I have been using for years a fairly dated version of ScientificWorkplace, but I am now slowly switching to do more and more in latex, which gives me greater flexibility. What I usually do now is writing my documents in ScientificWorkplace, and then taking care of formatting and other unusual features editing the documents in Latex, through a program called WinEdt. In almost all cases, when I am in trouble with some commands or options, I find a clear solution in this book. For this reason, if your profile sounds a bit like mine, I would highly recommend this book. The new (fourth) edition also includes extensive references to the "hyperref" package, which is very very useful to create great pdf output that includes links to footnotes/sections/equations etc., bookmarks, and active buttons.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not the best for absolute beginners, but great reference
For starting out in Latex, I recommend one of the many free online tutorials, such as the "not-so-short introduction to Latex".That will get you more than started.This book is a great add-on reference to that, and the level is just right: not too wordy, but easy to follow.It has much deeper coverage of how to do graphics and drawings, how to create a bibliography, how to create postscript and pdf files, etc, in addition to the basics, of course.

4-0 out of 5 stars Brief, effective introduction to Latex
This is an ideal introduction to the TeX line of text formatting tools. It starts with a high level overview of the toolset. Then dives into document construction, then into tables, lists, mathematical formatting, and into user constructions and extensions for bibliographies, as well as other topics. PDF and Postscript formatting is covered. As well as AMS-TeX which is more extensions or mathematical formatting.

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book with beautiful photography
The photography in this book is beautiful.Ms. Scott captures the innate beauty and emotions of every dog she photographs.Just by looking at these dog faces, one can get a sense of the hardship, the longing, and the hope of these canines.The stories behind each dog gives them such depth and character.Of course, these stories leave the reader/viewer filled with emotions including sadness and joy, but most importantly, they provide a reminder of just how precious shelter dogs are and just how much they want and deserve to be loved.
5-0 out of 5 stars Man's best friend, forgotten...
This is a collection of photographs of dogs from various shelters, each with a short description of their situation. These dogs are the unlucky and unwanted, sometimes abondoned by their "best friend", and some are picked up as strays. The photos capture the character of these dogs, and some have such sad looks. It is heartbreaking to read that some of these dogs in this book were euthanized, sometimes simply due to the lack of space in shelters. In those cases, these photos are the only remaining evidence of their short existance. Recommended for anyone who loves dogs. A percentage of proceeds from sales go to shelters.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!
Traer Scott has done an extraordinary job.The photos of these dogs are mesmerizing. A must have for dog lovers, and especially those of us who have walked into a shelter and fallen in love with a furry stranger who then becomes our best friend on the ride home. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Landscape Lighting 101
The Landscape Lighting book, by Janet Moyer, provides both an academic and practical level of landscaping lighting knowledge. Another good book, if you can find it, is the Ortho's book of How to Design and Install Outdoor Lighting.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Art and Craft of Landscape Lighting
The second edition of Janet Lennox Moyer's THE LANDSCAPE LIGHTING BOOK is an absolute necessity for everybody who works in landscape lighting or who is seriously interested in creating their own garden lighting. Ms Moyer has greatly revised and expanded the color plates and Chapter 4, "The Design Process - Documenting and Installing Landscape Lighting" as well as writing an entirely new Chapter 5 "Follow-up Work - Record Documents and Project Maintenance." These changes and additions and the many other updates make the new edition well worth the purchase price.
5-0 out of 5 stars expert opinion
Still the best book for the professional.Invaluable resource for architects, landscape architects and landscape lighting designers.Broad and deep with plenty of technical information.I purchased this book in1992 and I bought it again today (an electrician friend "lost" myoriginal copy).A second edition (if planned) should include betterinformation about transformer regulation (the ability of a low voltagelighting transformer to maintain 12v under load) and voltage drop (thedreaded decrease in voltage through the main supply cable) which arepresented as formulae rather than actual measurements.Great photographsmostly of large scale projects.This book should be in every outdoorlighting designer's library.

Susanka is a great architect! Love it all and look forward to generating a whole new look for my entire property!

4-0 out of 5 stars Many ideas for designing small areas near small houses
(4.5 Stars)I can see from the other reviews that there exist a wide range of opinions about this book.I fall on the high side, I suppose.I enjoyed the large number of photos and ideas for landscaping small areas - spots even - in the yard around a smaller home.

5-0 out of 5 stars Never out in print fast enough
Paul Aubin has done it again.Like my title says, Paul Aubin's books never come out fast enough for me.This book is a great resource for ADT users.There have been a lot of changes since ADT first came out.The major changes started in ADT 2004 and continue on thru ADT 2007.The changes from ADT 2006 to ADT 2007 are covered very well in this book.He takes you step by step thru a residential project & a commercial project.As you go thru the book he not only shows you how you command(s) work, but also why.He also gets into the subtle changes that have come about, e.g. Visual Styles.The books is arranged in such a way that you can be productive in ADT 2007 as you go along in the book.You don't have to wait until you are completed with the book to be productive.You can also move around in the book to go over a certain part of ADT without having to work your way up to it.For example, if you are just getting thru adding windows & doors & your work project needs to add a roof, you can go to the section of the book that covers roofs & you will be able to understand how to work roofs from reading the section withour having to do the sections before.But, if you can, go thru the book in the order that it's written to get the best grasp of ADT that you can.You can truly expect your skills to rise at least one level from going thru the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars For project boards & rendering
I bought this to help organize my project boards, which it is great for. The bonus is the information on rendering. There was better information here than in the other 2 books I own on color theory and rendering.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent resource
This book is an excellent resource for the interior design student. It's a book you should get as soon as you start studies. Great reference to compliment classroom lessons. I also recommended it to my Residencial Design teacher. It has basic information that will save you time.Great buy!!
