Universal Principles of Design is not what I expected. And that may be totally my fault. I expected a textbook on design. However, it reads like a dictionary with no connection between different ideas.
Universal Principles of Design may find a place in library reference sections but is really not easy, or useful, to read cover-to-cover. The text is dry, but it may help a designer with a project outside their comfort zone. 3 stars.
Thanks to Rockport Publishing and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
