    Review quote
    "One of the things I have really enjoyed about AVA's books is the selection of images and the various types of paper employed. Not only do your books house valuable content, the content is presented well with great photography - the angle shots, close-uos, etc. I currently use AVA's Basics Design: Format and Print and Finish for my two senior production courses. The heavy use of images with tight definitions and commentary appeal to the students and the type of examples selected by the authors inspire stronger design solutions." Elsi Vassdal Ellis, Western Washington University, USA.
