"This book does an amazing job. It breaks down the elements of design and explains them very clearly. The exercises are fun and relevant. . . I bought several copies of this book to share with others."

 Customer Review: 
"Wonderful for introducing the various career opportunities involving design. This book is organized well and easy to read. It has tabs for easy reference, pullout cards, and more! I bought it for my children . . . but I find myself stealing it away so that I can read it!"

 Editorial Review: Maria Popova / Atlantic Magazine                      Graphic Design for Kids and 6 Other Artful Nonfiction Books          "Graphic Design for Kids, part of the excellent Design Dossier series by Pamela Pease, introduces kids to the wonderful world of graphic design, from its history to its problem-solving and critical thinking methods. . . The interactive, spiral-bound volume includes profiles of iconic designers, with flash cards featuring pithy insights on their craft, brimming with die-cuts, pull-outs, and other treats that only analog books can offer."

 Customer Review:                                                                               "A great design book. Well written, highly informative. I am using it for high school level students."

  Editorial Review: John Hill, A Daily Dose of Architecture Books     "Design Dossier: Architecture for Kids has a more diverse format than most books. It is spiral-bound and has tabbed pages demarcating the six chapters: Architecture, Creativity, Portfolio, Milestones, Step-by-Step, and My Studio. The book progresses roughly from general to specific, from photos of different types of buildings in the first chapter to an exercise on a CD-ROM in the last. . . for me it was reminiscent of the earliest architectural classes I took, in which learned design by doing design.” 

  Customer Review                                                                              "Great gift for a young aspiring architect, although just a little pricey. My 13-year old loved it, so I’m happy."
