Four hundred color diagrams and illustrations visually supplement the definitions. With a sturdy concealed spiral binding that reduces wear-and-tear, The Designer's Lexicon exemplifies the criterion designers seek most in a reference bookutility. For established professionals navigating new design terrain, as well as students, production managers, and printers, this is an essential dictionary for a new century.
