I have bought quite a few design books this year, and I just can’t quit!

They inspire me daily (I love to flip through ACTUAL pages, and dog ear the images that get my heart racing), they support designers I admire, and of course they look amazing on coffee tables.

Gift them to yourself, gift them to others, or do both…

…but please, please promise me you will dive in and devour them (vs. demeaning them to just another shelfie).
