You don't see this level of creativity too often which is why I enjoyed this book so much. Noma Bar sort of does the impossible and sums up an almost abstract concept with what seems incredibly simple graphics. They are simple, of course, containing flat colors and easy on the eye graphics but step back and look carefully at what you see and it will become apparent that these are really complex examples of visual literacy.

It's a shame that nowhere in the book are a couple of examples of how Bar creates his remarkable graphics. How long do they take, how many ideas are rejected, is color included in his original roughs? On eight pages at the back of the book there are some thumbnails of his sketchbooks but they look completely unlike his finished designs, in fact a pastiche of colored scribbles, so no help there.

The range of material is impressive though there is a strong leaning towards contemporary world problems and Bar's work is the ideal illustrative material for this because his ideas get to the point where a photograph to say the same thing would be hard to find. His `Global warming' graphic says it all with a silhouette of a fried egg breaking out of a black panel and the yoke is a globe with the land mass a tint of light grey.

My only criticism of the book is that it is too large. Bar's graphics, because of their straightforward presentation, work best at postcard size or smaller and on these pages there is either a lot of surplus page space with a reasonably sized image or large areas of flat colour because the images are so big.

Noma Bar has made a career of what he calls 'pain relief' - 'Art directors and editors present Bar with a brief, which he must convert to an illustration, often on a tight deadline'. NEGATIVE SPACE is a beautifully designed book (from Mark Batty Publisher) that without words displays the genius that is Noma Bar. Page after page reveals his ability to make loud statements about all manner of concepts - from race relations, public policy, politics, sex, crime, and national identity to global conversations of crisis, and he accomplishes poignant commentary by the very simple use of negative space.

Viewing Bar's art takes some cerebral input: the images are strong works of art, but the messages they convey are even stronger. There are such images as a skull whose sockets are comprised of spider forms ('The ultimate spider hunter'), a pair of red boxing gloves hanging so that the spaces created between the thumb portion and the hand portion become the body of a muscle man ('Power to the People'), a gun whose trigger is the mouth of a dead head's face 9 ('Gun crime'), and an image of a dog whose features are replaced by female body parts ('Horny dog'). There is so much good humor as well as an equal amount of controversial ideas that the reader will find returning to this book a necessity to remember al the levels of artistic and philosophical information gathered here. This is an outstanding book of art design at its best. Grady Harp, September 09

I had never heard of Israeli-born Noma Bar until I spotted his incredible 3D/2D graphic illustrations (being exhibited at London's KK Outlet) in several creative/design RSS feeds. Most of the imagery was striking in its use of flat color and negative space. Shortly afterwards, I discovered his 2nd book of powerful graphic illustrations simply titled, "Negative Space" which was the 2D version of aforementioned gallery show. The title is plain yet truthful to the incredibly thought-provoking and unapologetic graphic images that take "the world's toughest realities and make them easy to take in." Dark subjects relating to death, war, violence, hate, and pain make up the "negative," while the economical use of "space" throughout the compositions balance various graphic elements. Overall, a very striking and beautiful graphic style collected in a book that is both a definite keeper and a source of inspiration for how to communicate simply and with economy. Can't wait for book #3!

Negative Space is one of the graphic designer's tools that reveals characteristics of the subject in the area of the graphics where nothing appears ... good graphic designers utilize "Negative Space" to their advantage, amateurs don't.

Negative Space, by Norma Barr is a stunning collection of work that shows all graphic designers, artists, illustrators and marketers how a simple, dynamic graphic can communicate sophisticated and complicated topics, issues and emotions. Barr will probably go down in history as a master of positive / negative visual space manipulation -- and if you're interested in graphic design at all -- YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS BOOK.

We at [...] were so inspired by this book that I decided to do a 3-part series on Designing Negative Space and Designing Spaces to help illustrate some of the techniques, tips and tricks of putting negative space to work. Barr is by far the world-class master of Negative Space

Negative Space by Noma Bar ... Wow, what a book! Bar is an artist with the power to make very simple pictures using strong, stark lines and empty shapes in bold colors. His art seems simplistic at a glance, but they will arrest your eyes, your imagination, and your soul and keep you thinking about the pictures for days. His portrays many of the world's greatest problems: death, depression, divorce, war, stalkers, hate, spiders, cancer, anxiety, to mention a few depicted in the book. The single bold image you see first captures your attention, then you read the title and look at the negative space and the art speaks volumes from the artist's imagination to stimulate your imagination while you ponder the deep subject of each painting. This book is one you and your friends will pour over time and time again, marveling at the novelty and profoundness of the art and the artist. A MUST!
