On the outset, there doesn’t seem to be much to Address Book – and why should there be? An address book is an address book, right? It seems like the essential function of Address Book, just like half a dozen alternatives, is to store basic contact information. It would be pretty difficult to mess this up.
Entourage offers more than this; I’ll freely grant that Entourage does indeed provide a robust contact manager. But don’t mistake Address Book’s simple form as an implication that it’s substantially less than Entourage offers. In fact, Address Book offers contact management that meets – and in some ways exceeds – the capabilities of Entourage.

You should check out the other work in the catalogue – beautiful patterns.
