About me: 

I've been retired for a few years from a career in magazine publishing as an Art Director so many of my reviews are for books dealing with visual culture. I've spent years handling images and type on the page so I'm naturally interested in book design and how well they work for the reader (we buy them after all) and my reviews will usually have some comments on the quality of design, photos, graphics, printing and paper.

As part of the review I use the Amazon upload facility to show spreads from books. Being able to see these can be as useful for a book buyer as my review.

If you design for print you might be interested in my blog Past Print. I've collected plenty of great looking examples of print design over the years and I'm uploading these to the Blog.

Give me some feedback by sending an email if you want to know about a book.
