Exquisite—great content, well researched, beautifully designed and produced.
It's testament to the passion and work ethic of Hexanine that they were able to produce such a wonderful source of inspiration for designers everywhere.
Damn Good is a beautifully designed book, but it's the stories behind the work that make it an inspiring read. I am 'damn sick' of seeing picture book after picture book void of any context—Hexanine has done a great job of providing some balance.
