I ordered this book because I have to advise on lighting a long hallway in a condominium. The book has many helpful photos and suggestions. Before reading this book I was looking for decorative fixtures as well as other more standard fixtures. The book is about aesthetic lighting, which is far more important than the aesthetics of the fixtures. Its examples have very lovely lighting, many of which are fairly standard recessed or soffit luminaires, which themselves are not decorative fixtures. It taught me to focus my attention on how to create artistic lighting.
Purchased this for a lighting design class and all is good so far. the professor said they selected this book because it had the most color illustrations and photos of all the books they reviewed. It is also cheaper than other text options. This book is published in the UK, so some of the word spellings vary from american english, but nothing too confusing. I received the book from this seller quickly and it was less expensive than purchasing it from the university bnookstore.
