Exciting times when another book on design comes out from Laurence King. This time a gorgeous looking book called Symbols has just been published and looks set to carry on where Logo finished off.
The pictures have already sold this to me and I have just placed my order through Amazon for £15, and can’t wait to get my filthy hands on it. Apparently not quite ready for my hands yet as there is a 6-9 day delay whilst the ink dries.
If I were you I would not bother waiting for any reviews if that’s how you usually roll. Trust me when I say that if it’s half as good as Logo then you can’t go wrong. And plus you could win a copy for which you can see how below.
From the website
This book features over 1300 symbols, organized into groups and sub-groups according to their visual characteristics. Each category includes a short introduction, with expanded captions providing information on who the symbol was designed for, who designed it, when, and where appropriate, what the symbol stands for. These sections are interspersed with short case studies on both classic examples of symbols still in use, and exceptional examples of recently designed symbols.
I actually found this through Pentagram website, and they have a few more images of the book on their site so worth checking out.
As this book looks so damn awesome I feel another giveaway is due. I will have 2 copies of Symbol to giveaway, and all you have to do is leave a brief comment below and one or two RT’s of this post, and I will announce the 2winners in a few weeks.
