Readers’ Comments

This is an entertaining and up-beat book, enjoyable as well as easy to get into and stay afloat in.

The images have an almost infuriating appeal. Unconsciously the eye tries to ‘clean up’ the fuzziness and gentrify the colours, but fails. One becomes hooked on them.

It is a leading edge book, in the way it acknowledges and works with the unexpected value of a mobile phone camera.

Marcus M Cornelius – Writer and Author

This book is a delight, erudite and educational. Easy to read, easy to like, and easy to look at.  The photos have a textured painterly look that grabbed me immediately.

The text flows playfully, prodding the pictures and holding them up and pointing things out. It feels like banter, like a visit to a gallery with a friend. I came out refreshed and enthusiastic.

Forget photography and smart phones, this is the best book on design I’ve ever read.
