very clever gareth.. i like the concept.. have to ask why the barcode?
Cheers nido. I'm not sure it's common knowledge but every book in the world has an ISBN number for which it can be found through databases: %0D*%0D*http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:ISBN%0D*%0D*The barcode is a reference to this along with the obvious consumer connection. I'm praying this gets chosen.%0D*%0D*
oh yeah... plus they can tell who's buying what books too.. like who actually bought Mary Cheney's book!
Haha yeah probably, seen as I just had to use google to find out who she actually is!
Very creative - I love it
Immediately says %22purchase%22 and %22books%22. Nice.
This logo really does speak. I love it. Favorite. :)
Nice one Gareth! There's something cool about b%26w.

yes very close, have seen other logos like it aswell, trying to source them.
Hi,%0D*%0D*Thanks for the report.%0D*%0D*OK, copyright laws boil down to this: they stop people copying implementations of ideas or concepts.%0D*Therefore, concepts and ideas cannot be copyrighted.%0D*%0D*We're sorry, but the reported design doesn't have any part that has been directly copied from the original.%0D*Therefore, there is nothing we can do about this.%0D*%0D*We agree that coping a concept very closely isn't the best of practices however it is not illegal, so there is nothing we can do sorry.%0D*%0D*If you require any more assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me again.%0D*%0D*Regards,%0D*%0D*Steven%0D*99designs Support Team
That's a familiar cut and paste response from 99 designs. They may has well remove the report button from their website because complaints about plagiarism often fall on deaf ears.
it's interesting. well done!
Smart... Definitely memorable!
Brilliant! Such a pity they didn't use it.
(or did they?)
Love it! Great Job!
