Designers Share Their Literary Inspirations
The Goodness blog conducted a little survey of 26 exemplary graphic designers that resulted in some unique answers. They asked participants to recommend a book that they have found particularly inspiring or meaningful to their development as a creative person, with the stipulation that graphic design books could not be mentioned. The end product is a very varied and surprising assortment of titles. Books range from children’s books like Go, Dog, Go!, to Brian Eno’s A Year With Swollen Appendices. Even more interesting is the details of what about the books sparked a creative streak in the designer’s minds.
