  • Suggested Reading?

    Books! Those paper things that were around before the Google mindset ruined a generation of designers.

    I'm looking for excellent typography books. Currently I am finishing Bringhurst's "Elements of Typographic Style," and would like something to follow up with.

    I'm about to pick up the "Looking Closer" (1-4) series...

    Any other suggested reading? Not just for typography - but great books you've read in general. I'm not looking for annuals and simple case study showcase books - but rather critical writings on graphic design.

    I have access to OhioLink, a college resource that links like 100+ colleges in the state of Ohio through their libraries, so I can pretty much recieve any book. So - price is not an object.

    I recieved Jeff Fisher's book from some tiny school in northeastern Ohio! That was a great read for a student.

    Someone should move this to the resources forum "quick like a bunny" before I feel dumb =/

        1ST, I just picked up a book last night called "Graphic Design That Works" the cool thing i like about this is it's a case by case study of real world logos, brochures, magazines and layouts and why they work. And they are popular things that we all know, not garbage.

        I also recently picked up a book called "Advertising Concepts & Copy" it goes into more depth about what goes into making an ad than any book I've ever seen. Whether you make ads or not I think it's a valuable resource.

          You'll also never find a desktop printer that will print on the weight of paper necessary for invites and cards. The lowest weight that customers would appreciate would be around 100# cover and even then...

          Ink/toner are the contributing factors toward the failure of going it on your own. Inkjet inks run in the rain (if the mailed piece just happens to get wet.) Desktop laser toners don't particularly like...

          A few years ago, I had the opportunity to work quite closely with a well-known designer one whose work most everyone would recognize.

          During that time, I learned a good deal from him. Most...

          Relatively speaking,
          I've saved more from having a company take care of the printing. Ink/toner alone can cost quite a bit....
