    One thought on “D&AD: The Copy Book”

    1. What an amazing, insightful read! Every copywriter, or anyone who works in advertising should read this book. Written in 1995 by 32 of the world's best copywriters, it gives you a glimpse into their lives, experiences and what inspired them to do the great work they did over the years.

The Copy Book offers an insight into the creative process of some of the world's leading copywriters, as well as demonstrating some incredible examples of their work.
