Indent, outdent, shake it all about

I've been reviewing a new graphic design textbook: Graphic design: the new basics by Ellen Lupton and Jennifer Cole Phillips. I tend to flip to the contents list, index and bibliography first to get an overview. Here's how the bibliography starts.



There's indenting and outdenting, and I know which works for me. Well, I did say it was a graphic design textbook. Not information design.

I should say that it looks like a good graphic design textbook - and although it seems to be something of a user-free zone, it gives a very good grounding in the aesthetics of graphic form.

  1. I always look at the bibliography too, and the indenting/outdenting in this one hurts my feelings (and my eyes) as a graphic designer...

    I only think that because Ellen is a graphic designer, this bibliography should be more 'readable', not the opposite:)

    Cheers from Rio de Janeiro,
    Ana.
