Michael Surtees

“I found myself wanting to read most of this book in the evening before I went to bed. I’m not much for reading in bed but I found that taking on a couple essays was an earned gift for the day I had just completed. I also noted that all those visuals affected my sleep state. I was dreaming a lot more. I’m sure this sounds a bit weird but I do think it’s important to note in this review. If you get the chance to read this book, try reading it before you fall asleep, it will change things entirely.”

“Highly recommended for lovers of design and vise versa. Debbie Millman proves here beyond any doubt that she is the Susan Sontag of graphic design, only without the two-tone hair and sexual confusion.”

Paula Scher

“Debbie Millman’s interviews and commentaries in both radio and print have been engaging and inspiring because she has successfully married the personal with the professional. … In her new book, Look Both Ways, Millman very bravely goes one step farther by shining her piercing light on herself to reveal an intimate expression, both written and depicted, of a passionate, vulnerable and intelligent life in design.”

“Some writers will open up their souls and show you the dark secrets hidden there. Others will open up their purses. That’s what Debbie Millman does in this deliciously intimate book. This charming book is stuffed with treats—sweet, spicy, and tart.”

“In Look Both Ways, Debbie Millman … commits one of the last forbidden sins of the design world; she tells us about her fear, love, and beliefs. Design is not about Garamond, it is about a unique vision formed by a personal life experience. Look Both Ways is a remarkable book; beautiful and incredibly engaging.”
