About this book
Rare and difficult-to-find essays provide fascinating reading in this third anthology in the Looking Closer series, a matchless resource tracing the continuum of critical thought from graphic designıs earliest days as a viable art and craft. Looking Closer 3 brings back into discourse more than thirty seminal essays by such distinguished figures as William Morris, Aldous Huxley, Alvin Lustig, and Paul Rand, reviving ideas of form and content as well as arguments over manner and style that have been lost for decades. For professionals, teachers, and students alike, this pivotal collection is an invaluable compliment to any design library. Michael Bierut is a partner of Pentagram, the international design consultancy. He lives in New York. Jessica Helfand is a partner of William Drenttel/ Jessica Helfand, a multimedia and print media company. She lives in Falls Village, CT. Steven Heller is a senior art director at The New York Times, editor of the AIGA Journal of Graphic Design, and the author or editor of more than seventy books on graphic design. Rick Poynor is the founding editor of Eye magazine and the author of six books on graphic design. He lives in Twickenham, England.

    Rebranded but a solid system

    0 5/5 dan - See all my reviews This review is from: Pergear®Heavy Duty Photography Camera Tripod Ball Head 360 Degree Fluid Rotation Tripod Ballhead For DSLR Camera Quick Release Plate (Electronics) I've seen this exact same tripod system re-branded with so many different names but it really is a great system. Sturdy, easy to use, portable, and you can keep the mounting plate on your camera and use the loop to attach it to a Black Rapid Strap. The loop is super solid so no need to worry that it will snap off and drop your camera. It's also pretty compatible with most other systems out there like the Arca Swiss. 0, December 30, 2014

    Deflects and changes camera position as tightened, fails to serve intended purpose.

    A ballhead should allow you to smoothly adjust the camera in all angles when the knobs are loose, then clamp the camera firmly into the desired position when tightened. Of course different ballheads will support different equipment weight, so you do need to choose a model designed for your setup. In my case I'm using a Canon 70D with a variety of Canon, Tamron and Sigma lenses, no combination of which comes close to the Pergear's maximum 8kg weight specification.The problem with this ballhead is immediately apparent when you first mount and try adjusting the camera. When you want to adjust the camera position your choice is to loosen the main knob to the point that the camera is completely loose, or leave some tension on the main knob and wind up with gritty, jerky camera movement. Perhaps this can be forgiven in a ball head costing only $30. However, the fatal flaw is that when you try to tighten the main knob the entire ball flexes in the base causing the camera to... 1/5 Mark (NJ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Good value Ball Head

    0 4/5 Laura - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: XCSOURCE® Pro All Metal Camera Tripod Ballhead with Quick Release Plate for Canon 5D mark II III 550d 50d 600d 1000d 1100d 650d 700d Nikon D7100 D7000 D5200 D5100 D3200 D3100 D3000 LF023 (Electronics) I purchased this product to put on the top of a monopod for quick and easy removal of my camera while out hiking. I use it with a Manfrotto MM294A4 294 and a Canon 60d. I usually have a Canon 70-200 or a Tamron 70-300 attached to the 60d. It does work and is built well. The cost us much less than the name brands. I can't say if it is as good as the name brands as I don't own any of them. it works for what I wanted and I will also use it on my tripod once I get a thread adapter. This is larger than what is on my tripod. My monopod will accept either size threads. One small thing; the part that you turn to tighten the plate to the camera is a little finicky. What I am talking about is on the bottom of the plate. It is sometimes a little hard to fold down if you don't have fingernails, and sometimes it falls down and hits when you are trying to mount the plate on the rest of the ball head. All-in-all I am happy with this purchase. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 3, 2013

    Good Budget Ballhead

    0 4/5 Salomon Pena - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: XCSOURCE® Pro All Metal Camera Tripod Ballhead with Quick Release Plate for Canon 5D mark II III 550d 50d 600d 1000d 1100d 650d 700d Nikon D7100 D7000 D5200 D5100 D3200 D3100 D3000 LF023 (Electronics) The Mefoto Road Trip Arca Swiss quick release plate works great on this ballhead. I got an adapter to place this on my Gorillapod SLR zoom tripod and it works well. When the pan knob is all the way opened the pan works smooth. The ball head grinds a little and in certain spots when there is little tension on the pan knob. It holds solid with a GH4 and a 17mm Olympus lens attached. It comes with one quick release plate that has a D-ring Screw. Which is really nice. I would recommend this ballhead to anyone looking for a good budget ballhead.I hope this was helpful. 0, December 7, 2014

    WARNING Screw Adapter Required!

    0 4/5 Mark - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Koolehaoda 360°single Handle Hydraulic Damping Three-dimensional Head with Quick Release Plate for Tripod Monopod (Electronics) I recently purchased a tripod that did not include the panning head so I knew I would need to buy a separate one. After arriving in the mail, I was very pleased with its extremely durable build quality. Even just holding the tripod mount in my hand, I could feel that it was built to last. The only downside is when it finally arrived, I proceeded to attach it to my tripod when I found out that the screw hole is bigger than the standard camera thread. This was a quick fix with a $2 screw adapter (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008MLZF7W/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_1) however I was slightly disappointed with the fact that they did not include this adapter in the package. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 6, 2015

    Very nice and very highly recommended.

    I wasn't really sure just what to think of this pan head as there are only nine reviews. The reviews seemed to be most positive so I went with my fellow reviewers opinions. I have been looking for a good pan head to place on top of my tripod but find the price ranges to be greatly over that which I wanted to pay. Not to mention the fact that the reviews were not that great for something so highly priced. Once again proving that a higher priced product does not mean a better quality product. Then this little beauty caught my eye, and I am glad that it did. I have not used this pan head to any great extent but I will state that everything works very well. While rotating the head 360 degrees I did feel a point of slight resistance, or what I would call a high spot. It is an area in which the head meets a point during rotation that puts up a small drag. This is a miner thing that I thought you should know. This maybe local to the product that I received. It works great. This product is... 5/5 S.
