Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805075755, Hardcover)

Design is all about the perception of size, shape, and color.

A fabulous and fun introduction to the concepts of design

A Book About Design: Complicated Doesn't Make It Good takes a most creative approach to introducing young (and not-so-young) readers to the fundamental elements of design. Using simple shapes, lines, and a sense of humor, this book explains why complicated doesn't make it good-and why that matters. Mark Gonyea opens up the world of design and makes it accessible to young artists and non-artists alike.

Design is all about the perception of size, shape and color; simpler is often better. Why is that? This book explains why making something complicated doesn't make it good.
