Review by Patrick Holt
Because the design industry is populated not only by the well-educated, but also by the self-taught and the self-tutored-after-a-mediocre-education (I fall into the latter), it’s likely that many of us missed an opportunity to read Philip Meggs’ A History of Graphic Design (Amazon: US|CA|UK|DE), now in its fourth edition, during our formative years.
I have been wanting to write the review of Daniel Eatock’s book, Imprint, (Amazon: US| CA| UK| DE) for some time. It has lain on my desk for weeks and I have delved into it over an over, but the truth is that I have struggled to really work out how to describe it.
Review by Daniel Gray
Within minutes of picking up Roy R. Behren’s Camoupedia (Amazon link), I was regurgitating fascinating bits of camouflage-related trivia at anyone who would listen, like some kind of third-rate Stephen Fry.
I did a bit of moonlighting for Core77’s Hack2Work event, which is a collection of essential tips and tricks for the design professional. My contribution is a fairly arbitrary selection of 19 Books Every Design Professional Should Own.
