Designers & Books


We’ve had bookshelf porn on this blog, now it’s time for bookshelf voyeurism.

The site “Designers & Books” gives us a peek into the libraries of some 50-and-counting more-or-less famous designers from around the world (well… Actually, at the moment they have one from Finland, one from Japan, five from the UK and 49 from the USA, so… I guess they’ll have to do some travelling soon…)

The designers show us which books have had an impact on their life and design practice. A lot of the people included are architects or product designers, but there are twenty-or-so graphic designers as well.

So. Do you want to know what Paula Scher is reading? John Maeda? Michael Beirut? Milton Glaser even? Of course you do! It’s silly, I know. But can you resist taking a peek at the bookshelves when you are visiting someone? No you can’t…. Of course not.
