June Meetup #3: Books on Graphic Design

We'll actually be SOUTH of the river for lunch this Wednesday, since Cafe Express had a schedule conflict. So join us for lunch at Pok-E-Jo's Smokehouse on South Capital of Texas Hwy (it's in the Brodie Oaks shopping center, between CapTex and South Lamar, where Sprouts, Toys R Us and Pei Wei are). Yes, we're talking barbecue, and those of you who know me will understand why this is ironic.

 

The discussion topic will be about books on graphic design. We spend so much of our time online these days that most of our attention for design resources is focused on websites and other internet media, but there are some awesome books out there. What books do you like? Bring examples if you have them, or we can look them up online (irony again). They can be anything from straight-up guides or learning books (like Design Basics Index by Jim Krause), to historical perspectives (like Tadao Ando: Complete Works [masked])), to area-specific overviews (like Theater Posters by Karl Domenic Geissbuehler).

 

What books do you turn to for guidance, for inspiration, for perspective, or even just for entertainment? Come share with us, and learn about new books too.
