Review: Signs and Symbols: Their Design and Meaning

User Review  - A. Loobeensky - Goodreads

Polish edition of this book (edited by d2d.pl) is pure beauty; letters and illustratons was so well-composed that I almost couldn't focus my attention on reading. The book itself is really good, juicy and full of informations; 'must have' for someone interested in the theory of signs. Read full review
