People often ask me what books they should read to learn more about design. Here’s a spattering of my favorite titles. Being an economics alumnus, a good deal of these titles have something to do with economic policy or theory (inequality, institutions). But interwined you will find themes ranging from design and architecture, to PDFs about programming and logic. I hope you’ll find some it useful.

Some of my favorite publishers and resources: Gestalten, Taschen, Open Culture, Standards Manual.
