However, I will definitely not be selling this to another student! I like the way everything is written; it's very down to earth and easy to understand. If you're looking for a specific person or time period, it's very easy to locate that. This is the first history book I've found that made sense when divided into chapters; everything else I've read (for school or leisure) was disorganized and confusing. I'll be keeping this for future reference.
There are a lot of pictures of the artifacts they are talking about, and lots of good information.
The book came in excellent condition with no bends, rips, or fraying. The cover is actually a dust jacket, the actual book is white.
There are also loads of images with informative captions, which alone are going to help you loads over simply approaching the history of graphic design knowing very little, such as I did.
A used 4th edition would still serve the purpose, if you're on a tight budget.
