i found this book in Heffers in Cambridge last week and I have found it hugely inspiring. Each designer has a paragraph about their work surrounded by several pages from their sketchbooks.

This is the kind of book that I know I will keep with me through the years and i have already discovered new ways of working by following the thought-process of the designer through their working sketches. Some of the designers paint, while others almost entirely consist of developing fonts. The layout is beautiful, as all Thames & Hudson books are and the quality of the print is wonderful. This is a book that I know will be used heavily over the years to inspire my own work.
