My favorite building in New York City hands-down is Saarinen's TWA Terminal. Utopian architecture had its brutalist missteps, but Tale of Tomorrow celebrates big ideas, unique visions and crazy spaces.
It's expensive and amazing and probably worth convincing your office to buy a copy. Apple's new hardbound book (available in large and small sizes) chronicles 20 years of Apple’s design. 450 photos span products from 1998 to 2015 in this very nice linen-bound volume.
As LaGuardia Airport painfully renews itself and the L train lurches towards a shutdown apocalypse, I console myself with the visions in Never Built New York. Subway cars run on atmospheric pressure, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ellis Island dream city, Buckminster Fuller’s Dodger Stadium...someday maybe.
"How am I going to make business information look interesting? Again?" This book (an annual volume) was inspiring and gave hope to any presentation designer looking to break free of the dreaded stock image charts.
TASCHEN nailed it with this illustrated history of Disney animation (up to 1967's The Jungle Book). Concept paintings, storyboards, rare pictures, ephemera...a worthy visual film history even for non-Disney fans.
