i managed to buy something in every charity shop i went into on the isle of wight and swore when i entered this one that i wouldn't buy anything. not being a reader, i headed over to the book section (surely the safest place) and this lovely book was staring up at me from the bottom shelf. i had a quick flick through and nearly dirsegarded it as it was mostly text but then found these gems (ha). the colours in them are so beautiful, even the background greys. the scientific layout tops it off perfectly with the little numbers and descriptions in the footer. can totally see why this theme has inspired so many designers.
