Books for designers this month: August edition
Every month hundreds of books are released on design-related topics. In this post you can find the books released in June that I found worth sharing.
Steven Heller’s new book on type, this time discussing shadow type.
Conditional Design: Workbook
Conditional Design provides beautifully simple ideas for open, collaborative processes in art and design. Its workbook format organizes the material step by step, and the publication as a whole provides exciting ways for others–groups of children as well as artists and designers–to apply the method themselves.
The Logo Design Toolbox
With this toolbox of practical logo templates à la Neubau Welt, Alexander Tibelius provides designers with useful groundwork for implementing their own ideas.
This book is an illustrated exploration of typography. Each typeface is represented by an illustration and a list of answers to in-depth, interview questions. This collection will help anyone understand type in a new and exciting way.
