Area features 100 of the most important graphic designers to have emerged internationally during the past ten years and it also has some of the world's most influential commentators picking their own personal design classics. It also showcases work on projects across a diverse spectrum from corporate identity, typography and packaging to CD covers and book design, giving fascinating little insights into how the work evolved.
You're not likely to find a more comprehensive overview of the emerging stars in contemporary graphic design. This will broaden your horizons - and it looks nice too. You could just about get away with bunging it on expenses.
