I hope you enjoyed my quick list. It was a small taste of all the design books I have and an even smaller bit of the list of books I want to get. Books are one of my primary tools in my design process, there’s nothing quite like being able to highlight or put little Post-It flags on the pages. It’s a design experience itself to feel the cover, the paper stock inside and be able to enjoy the design of it while searching for your next bit of inspiration. Design books are not going anywhere. I would love to know what your favorites are so I can add them to my ever-growing collection. Design is a wonderful world. I hope you’ll continue to join me here, because design matters.
