Designers & Books is devoted to publishing lists of books that admired design professionals identify as personally important, meaningful, formative and have defined their view on design.
The website has been designed to encourage comments, generate debate, and facilitate discussions about the books that are posted. The designers who have contributed book lists are architects, fashion designers, graphic designers, interior designers, and product designers—as well as practitioners in additional specialised fields of design.
Designers & Books was created by Steve Kroeter and the website was designed by Pentagram.
With 843 books listed so far, from Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer to Edward De Bono's Thinking Course. The collection has certainly bulked up our reading lists for the year. Which books have inspired you?
