Bookshelf Additions! :P

Finally, it’s here!!! My lovely cousin did me a huge favor, and bought me these 5 lovely books from the U.S.

I owe her BIG time, since they were a total bargain and she had to sacrifice her suitcase space to fit these babies!!! THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU!!!

Here are my lovely bookshelf additions:

(Can’t wait too doodle on this!! :P)

2. Thinking with Type: A Primer for Designers: A Critical Guide for Designers, Writers, Editors, & Students by Ellen Lupton

(This is said to be a must-read for Graphic Designers! I read this and fell in love with it.. so really had to get myself a copy 😀 )

3. Beyond Trend: How To Innovate In An Over-Designed World by Matt Mattus

(I read this in our office library too!!! I consider this as an influence towards my attitude in design.)

4. Designing Media by Bill Moggridge

(One of the best design books of 2010 together with…)

5. Graphic: Inside the Sketchbooks of the World’s Great Graphic Designers by Steven Heller

(Aside from this book making the list, I just love picking some of the design greats’ brains! I was totally totally sold when I saw, Marian Bantjes, Stefan Bucher and Stefan Sagmeister from among a number of designers on the list.. @_@ )

This will keep my eyes preoccupied for quite some time—DEFINITELY! 🙂

  1. They sound good! Have you ever tried using thebookdepository.com to order books from the US? (There’s a .co.uk version too, it’s worth checking both to see which is cheaper.) Free postage worldwide!

    1. Nope, I’m not familiar with that, but thanks for sharing! Maybe I can bypass bothering relatives from abroad to get my hands on those lovely books I’ve been dying to purchase. Thanks again!
