Continuing my book review series without the lovely Stanley... i have a few books on type about the house. i mainly use them for reference for my work. When i have a minute they are great to flick through...i find it really helps with giving my usual way of laying out type with images a boost. i can get really stuck in a rut if I don't regularly look outside my little illustration world, and these are the books i often turn to first if i can't get out the house for inspiration.
do you have any 'must have' books for inspiration or when you're stuck in a creative rut? i'd love to add to my collection....
