    Beginning with such intangible subjects as taste and beauty, this book is an accessible introduction to how thoughtful practitioners approach all forms of design, whether architecture, product or graphics. Illustrated with examples from the Parthenon to a Kenwood mixer, the London Underground map to a Jaguar car, the author explains technical issues, such as balance, composition, colour, texture and form, as well as discussing how more philosophical considerations contribute to good design.
