This book reflects on the continuously evolving field of information design, with special interest in the education of information designers. The core of it consists of interviews with sixteen renowned international designers. Combining these dialogues with illustrations of their work required a well considered spread design. At the beginning and the end of the book two visual essays, encapsulate the interviews. The cover of the book reflects the content and the structure of the book straightaway.
