  • 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.

          Seems like common sense about not being able to crop a vertical photo into a horizontal space without problems, but you're not the only one running into it. Every now and then somebody will send me a...

          I've used Illustrator most every day for nearly three decades now, and what you're showing in your image could be the result of about three or four dozen different problems or a combination of those things...

          You didn't say that, nor did I imply that you did.

          What I'm saying is that you seem to be looking at it from the perspective of being able to learn on one's own to create interesting and...
