It is lovely book... and so needed! The only thing that could previously be found on the subject were hideous looking (not inspirational at all), out of date, publications from the 70's... and even those are few and far between.
I can't wait to get my copy in the mail!

Thanks for all your hard work... the end result is a true gem!

I just bought this book on Friday and I'm already done reading it. I can say that this is the most informative simple book that I have read thus far on this subject. I couldn't put it down. I am so inspired by the interviews I read about in the books that I emmediatly started searching for someone to recreate my logo etc. This is a dream of mine and you truly have made me realize that I can start my own business and be successful. Thanks you so much for writing this book .I'll keep it forever and ever.

P.S I will be writing my blog tomorrow about this book and I will come back to give you the link.

Nowadays, people spend a lot of time searching for a particular image but are not able to find the exact one they need. If you are having such a problem, can check http://xcavator.net/

I hope it will help you. It has fantastic visual search tools that work with just a few keywords.
