Simplicity: A Matter of Design by Per Mollerup

Mollerup, P. (2015). Simplicity: A matter of design. Amsterdam, The Netherlands: BIS Publishers.

I sat down in the living room. I read, turned the pages, read, skimmed, and read again. A long period passed.

Then I stood up and announced to the room, "this is a brilliant book!"

What more need I say?

I loved everything about it: the cover, the typesetting, the book design, the illustrations, and most of all, the commentary. I loved the analysis of the levels of simplicity and the distinction between quantity-simple and quality-simple. This is a deep and thoughtful book about a topic that sounds simple but is in fact deep and complex topic.
