  • good design books for less than $10?

    I have approximately $7 left on my Barnes & Noble gift card. Any good design books available for less than $10?

    www.half.com probably has a plethora of them, as well as your local used bookstore. Old graphic design textbooks are easy to find cheap, etc...

    But, as for a new book at B&N, wouldn't it be cooler to get $7 off a $50 book? The only thing that comes to mind (other than an issue of Print, CMYK, HOW, Layers, etc...) is Strunk & White's "The Elements of Style" because knowing how to write will take you further than you think in this ADHD age of non-communication and substituting "why" with "y" because typing 3 letters is just too darned hard.

      You can get a magazine for $7 bucks.

        Actually my original background is writing.

          no, but doesn't B&N have a Starbuck's onsite? I'm not into supporting major conglomerates, but I can't seem to unhook my Caramel Machiato intervenus-drip. And you can almost buy 2 for $7... it means you could take a friend!

            Beauty in Graphic Design? Do not make the mistake of thinking that Graphic Design is art. It is not.

            Probably not relevant to the assignment, but cloth-covered hardbacks are nearly always sold with paper dust jackets. It would be the dust jacket-covered book that would be shown in the ad since that's...

            I was able to restart this morning and change the keychain password. It looks like everything is synced up. I can log into the computer and get online. IT has me locked out of everything else. Hopefully...

            I suppose I'm an oldie. Sigh.

            And i remember you and Ulysses. I don't post very often, but I do check in from time to time. Congrats on 10 years and the 3 kiddos.

            Different tax laws in the US I suppose. You are right that it is imperfect because you do still need to charge sales tax.
