New York Society of Architects Newsletter, January 1992: "The TIME-SAVER STANDARDS FOR INTERIOR DESIGN AND SPACE PLANNING is a comprehensive reference of all that was left out of the well known 'Ramsey-Sleeper' Graphics Standards that serves as the standard reference of many architectural offices... thorough and informative, providing what every office needs. It is clearly a superior and more organized interior design 'reference' book than most others on the market. A must for any office involved in interior design and space planning" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Booklist, January 1992: "... a comprehensive handbook of graphic standards. Professionals in interior design will find it useful, although they will probably buy personal copies. Architecture libraries will want the work, and public libraries serving home remodelers may also feel it a necessary purchase. Librarians planning a new building will also find it very helpful. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
American Reference Book Annual, 1992: "Interior designers now have an authoritative handbook specifically geared to the planning and design of interior spaces." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
New York Society of Architects Bulletin, 3/92: "A comprehensive reference of all that was left out of the 8th Edition well-known "Ramsey-Sleeper" Graphics Standards, a book that serves as a standard reference of many architectural offices." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Academic Library Book Review, 12/92: "The editors of this excellent compendium note in the Foreword that it is, 'a resource of incredible range and detail,' and indeed it is treasure trove of practical information on both residential and commercial interiors, one that thoroughly examines the planning data, technical details, and decorative elements eeded to design and plan interior spaces... gives hundreds of useful and time-saving details for furniture and interior elements... highly recommended for all libraries, and for professionals working in vaious aspects of architecture and design."

Reviewer: Dan E. Stoddard from San Diego, CA United States
This is a "must have" for anyone in the interior design industry. The best book since Architectural Graphic Standards for the Interior Design Profession. Very Specific and all inclusive, excellent details for just about every application.
Required purchase for my Interior Design Students to use through out their educational and professional careers.
Not great but the only thing like it., January 14, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from USA
This is a compilation of materials from other sources, most of which are readily available to everyone but it's very convenient to have all the information in one place. However, some of the information is inaccurate, some of the illustrations are out of date, and many are poor copies of photocopies that aren't legible. I find this inexcusable in a book intended for designers and one that is $100+. Unfortunately, it is the only book of its kind. I recommend double checking any information that you take from it. Reznikoff is the only comparable book and that is even more out of date. At least Reznikoff was well produced though.
