Idea Index kick-started a revolution in graphic design books, unique in size, feel—and most important—wealth of ideas. Layout Index is the next step, a compendium of layout idea-generators that will help designers explore multiple possibilities for visual treatments each time they turn the page. The visual and textual suggestions are divided into eight major areas, including newsletters, flyers, posters, brochures, advertising, stationery, page layout, and Web pages.

This is not your typical layout book! Essentially, this is an idea book for putting together brochures, posters, flyers, newsletters, page layouts, stationery, and even web design. It doesn't tell you "how" to do something - the projects are just presented, and as I skimmed through them, a stream of ideas came into my mind. It's a pocket-sized book (5 1/2 x 4 3/4") with a nice plastic cover, designed to be carried around. I bought it to use as an idea book for scrapbooking, and I haven't been disappointed - It has some wonderfully original art layouts. It also has a concise overview for each project which I found interesting. Next time I have to design a booklet or poster or flyer, etc. I would refer to this book first!
Review: Layout IndexUser Review - Goodreads
Speaking of layout... this book is hard to read. There's a reason most art (etc) books are on the larger side. This one is quite small. The idea is a good one, but there's little information actually offered or conveyed per piece.
