The grace and beauty of TOC

Guys from the Design Observer blog have published a small book, The Next Page: Thirty Tables of Contents. It features Table of Contents (TOC) pages from 30 different publications that range from poetry and fiction to non-fiction prose of all kinds. Meeting so much different TOC styles, designs, and structures gathered in one place was fun. The collection inspired me to pay more attention to TOC design and, as the book's authors promised, I found the examples "engaging, the discrepancies between them even more so."

The book is now available as online slideshow at Design Observer's site. Also, these and 40 more TOC snaps are available on Flickr.

P.S. Thanks to Boris for sharing the link.
