Graphic design inspiration - books!

Even in digital age I still put a book on number one place for education, entertainment and relaxation. I often pay a visit to public or university library. The books I love most are the ones with plenty of photos, images and illustrations. Childrens books are full of these. Books on graphic design are very much like childrens books too. My favourite author/graphic designer is Alan Fletcher. His book "The Art of Looking Sideways" has been my bible in good and bad days. Alan could be possibly considered a founder of environmental graphic design. Here's what Wikipedia says about Alan. Here's bit more from Design Museum in London. And even more from the Eye Magazine. And finally here's what Design Week says about Alan Fletcher. This man is a true legend and deserves monument. Below is a video interview with Alan Fletcher on launch of his book "The Art of Looking Sideways" few years ago. At the bottom of the page there are few books he (co-)wrote.
