Updated: Apr 15, 2021
Books every designer needs in their studio! Some of these books are great coffee table books, others are educational, and some are cult classics. Curious what to get your designer friend as a gift? You can't go wrong with one of these books!
If you're an Architect or budding Architect and you haven't read The Fountainhead, stop what you're doing and go read it (then come back to read the rest of my recommendations).
