I said I had an idea for a thread, and I’ve just got in. Sorry for my tardiness @Witches.
Anyway, anyone got any particularly lovely books? I think I’m mostly looking at non-fiction, coffee table style books. I bloody love books, got boxes and boxes in the attic, mostly all my fiction stuff as I thought I was less likely to want them while I’m staying here. I’ve got some with me though, for inspiration, etc. Books that look nice, books that make me laugh, books that mean something. Books!
Here are some of my favourites:
Love the Perry Bible Fellowship, and this is the smart book he made of all of them, a while ago. Perfect coffee table fodder.
One of my bibles at uni, and decent to dip into now. Some of the design work is a bit 10 years ago but the theories and workflows always get me thinking.
My other bible at uni. Just amazing for reference, but full of amazing stuff for anyone to enjoy I reckon.
The Art of Walt Disney. How could it not be amazing? Cost me £70 - worth every penny.
This is a graphic novel, so I suppose it’s fiction. Absolute work of art, and darkly funny. The bestbest kind of funny.
This is a comic, but split into a load of different formats telling different aspects of the story. Incredible. There’s even a tiny little book telling the story from the perspective of a bee. A fucking bee! Love shit like this.
Dude knows how to spaff out a decent verse.
Surprisingly interesting book about punctuation parks. I know… It really is great though, and is nicely put together.
Here’s my nice books shelf, because I’ve gone on long enough.
Sorry for the massive OP. Show me your lovely books!
