I love books, there is no such thing as owning too many, it’s more like I don’t own enough. I was going to share lots of books, but then I thought, why not just show five special ones.
Paper: Tear, Fold, Rip, Crease, Cut
I’m doing a degree in book arts and design, so I spend a lot of time using paper to create and this is a great book for inspiration, it shows many different ways you can use paper to create something from fashion pieces to illustrations.
Hand Job: A Catalog of Type
Every designer needs a book of type, there are no questions about it. I have this book because I love hand drawn type and this book has a huge variety to look at!
Drawing from Life: The Journal as Art
Looking at strangers journals is exciting, how journals get doodled in and organised. It’s a great inspiration if you want to start a visual journal, but don’t really know how to.
This book is just pure excitement, from the beginning to the end! It’s a book filled with characters, monsters, figures and cartoons. If you enjoy drawing comics etc this book is the best book to look at for character inspiration.
Naive Graphics: Modernism and Folklore in Contemporary Graphic Design
This book is breathtaking and stunning. Although it’s expensive it’s a great source of inspiration for all kinds of design.
