Economies of Design
The book exudes thoroughness, and yet it comes with a personal touch. Julier’s is a rare perspective that has had an effect on me…I can recommend this book not only to design students, design practitioners, and design academics but to a much wider audience of those interested in a multi-disciplinary perspective on how mankind shapes the world. …[it] is very well written. It uncovers deeper insights that add to our understanding of design.

I have been using your Culture of Design and Economies of Design books in writing my PhD and wanted to say thank you! They are very useful for a design history/studies project that questions design history models, authorship in design, economic contexts for globally designed and made products, and more.
