Designers & Books

The Library knows that just because the semester is over doesn’t mean creative people turn their brains off!  That's why we know you'd love to check out this website Designers & Books! 

It profiles 87 participating designers to showcase what books have been most influential to each artist’s creative process. Currently there are 1,124 books that have been selected, and a new list is added each week.  Take a peek!

Is your favorite designer on the list????
