I just spent an hour compiling a list of 28 art/design/architecture/and photography books to get your creative Juices flowing. Sadly it did not save properly, and it has vanished (along with the last hour of my life). So I’m afraid you will be getting a greatly condensed version. I will just focus on the gems found at Phaidon. You can always count on them for a great art book. Click on the title for more information.
