|Quote||"With this small lexicon you can test your own creative knowledge. Ordered alphabetically, it covers a thousand concepts of design and art, ranging from the Alvar Aalto vase to the Zundapp Janus, a colourful kaleidoscope of creativity. In fact, it includes also many useful information, such as who designed the logos of IBM, Apple and Coca Cola or what certain graphic or typographic technical terms mean. Hotchpotch is a fun pocket-sized memorabilia."
