    1. Graphic Style is a timeline of graphic design from the Victorian to digital era. It's a book that you don't read so much as flip through. It's good for reference but it doesn't do much to add dimension to the different styles.

    2. Beautifully laid out (they must know someone in graphic design or something). Engaging and incredibly informative, this is the best historic breakdown of graphic styles in poster art that I have ever come across and lordy-lordy they sure don't skimp on the pictures. Worth every single penny and 20,000 more.

    3. I used this book for my course this year and I read it from front to back and I think it has some awesome inspiring images in it as well as some great information about different type periods of design.And yes, I'm totally counting this as something I read, because I did. Granted, I was forced to because of college. But at least I enjoyed it.

    4. Just not what I expected. The examples are fine, but instead of an overview of minor and major art movements and styles, I get a mishmash of confused history.
