Lately I've really wanted to buy some more books! Right now my book shelf is mostly filled with only 2 authors, so I want to expand my collection and read some books by some different authors! I also want some more design books since they're always a great source of inspiration! I've put together this book wishlist of some books that I've been wanting lately!
2. Typography 32 by Type Directors Club // I've only had a quick peek into this book once on a trip to Chapters, but I really liked what I saw inside. It's the latest Typography Annual put together by the Type Directors Club. The book features different categories as well including books, magazines, corporate identity, posters, and more!
3. Just My Type by Simon Garfield // Seeing a theme here yet? This book is supposed to be a fantastic read for any graphic designer or anyone interested in typography. From what I understand it's about the history of type, as well as little mysteries of type. It seems like something that would be a really interesting read!
4. Every Day by David Levithan // A book not about typography! This is a novel by David Levithan that's about someone named "A" who wakes up in a different body every single day, but is always in love with the same girl. I think it seems like a really unique love story! I've also read Will Grayson, Will Grayson that was written by Levithan in collaboration with my favourite author, John Green, and that book is one of my favourites!
5. I Heart Stationery by Charlotte Rivers // This is a book all about stationery and paper crafts! It includes chapters on hand illustration, screen printing, letterpress, paper cutting, and more! As a graphic design student and someone who enjoys crafts, I think I'd really like this book!
6. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl // I recently saw the movie that was based on this book and even though I didn't think I would like it much, I surprisingly really enjoyed it! I have heard that the book series is better than the movie though, so now I want to read the books!
Have you read any of these books? What's your favourite book?
