The Observer Decameron—Ninth Day

book cover Reprint Karel Martens
Karel Martens
This is an incredible overview of Martens work and approach to teaching design, over the course of his 54 year career.


book cover Only What's Necessary: Charles M. Schulz and the Art of Peanuts
Chip KIdd
Written by Chip Kidd, who also designed the book and the perfect cover, which illustrates the title so well, this volume is a beautiful tribute and testament to the genius that is Charles Schulz.


book cover Bob Dylan: All the Songs
Philippe Margotin
The subtitle is The Story Behind Every Track, and they mean it.


book cover The Story of the Lost Child
Elena Ferrante
This is the fourth novel in the wonderful Neopolitan trilogy. I know that doesn’t make sense, but it doesn’t matter. Start with the first one and you’ll be ready for this fourth one, published in September, in no time. She is like a modern day Jane Austen crossed with JK Rowling.


book cover How To
Michael Bierut
Michael Bierut’s monograph is a testament to his talent, intelligence, humanity, and humor. It should be required reading for young (and less young) designers.


book cover Experimental Jetset, Statement and Counterstatement
Experimental Jetset
This collection of work by the Dutch design studio is a joy to behold.


book cover Every Person in New York
Jason Polan
Jason Polan’s quirky drawings and musings about the people in our city is the perfect antidote to the Humans of New York series. And Kristin Wiig wrote the foreword.


book cover Gratitude
Oliver Sacks
Sacks’ brilliant essays about going and dying will make you feel more alive than ever before.


book cover Map: Exploring the World
Victoria Clarke
A simply gorgeous book for the map obsessive in your life, which may be you.

A new Dr. Seuss book. What more is there to say?
