Books

We all love to read right? Since this is a design blog, I decided to put out some recommendations of my own of which I think is inspiring towards my design work. It may be long, but worth it. I will link all recommendations to amazon because personally I think it is cheaper, but everyone has his/her opinion.

Here are the Categories:
Typography
Grids & Layout
Design
Bookbinding
Portfolio
Sketching & Misc.
