looking for a book

Can anyone help me out? I’m looking for the ISBN number of a book. I believe the title is “Products” or “Product Design”. It is a big coffee table type book with a purple cover. Came out about 1999 or 2000.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


I don’t know but check this book too:

IDEO: Masters of Innovation by Jeremy Myerson good book.

Is it this one?:

Product Design
by Kevin Otto, Kristin Wood

I found it on Amazon.com in 2 seconds:

Product Details:

It’s called The Product Book by Catherine McDermott, published by D&AD she was one of my lecturers at college.

The Product Book by Catherine McDermott – That’s the one!!!

Thanks for the response. The other ones I have, but this one has eluded me for sometime. I had only seen it once. I knew it had a simple title and that the color was purple, but was having a hard time finding it in “2 seconds” on Amazon.

Thanks for the other two titles - I’ve already got those :astonished:)

BTW - at what school does/did she teach? Was she a good instructor? Just curious.

Let her know that I like her book very much.
