Must read books for graphic designers by Rick Poynor

  • Graphic design books are a kind of meta-book. These are the publications in which the art of making books (as well as other graphic media) is discussed. Any graphic designer who read only this kind of book would have a severely limited view of the world. On the other hand, any graphic designer who made a point of avoiding books about graphic design would have a highly circumscribed view of the discipline. For this reason, I have concentrated here on graphic design books and have resisted the temptation to dilute the mixture by including volumes about other aspects of art and visual culture that might also be relevant to graphic designers. To be useful, such a list would need to be three times as long.
