21 design books you must own

1. Things I Have Learned in My Life So Far
Stefan Sagmeister
Publisher: Harry N Abrams
ISBN: 9780810995291
Price: £19.99
Things I Have Learned in My Life So Far is a format that surprises: 15 individual pamphlets showcasing the design work to date of the seminal Sagmeister Inc. Once you get past the novelty of swapping the pamphlets around inside the die-cut, portrait-led cover, you'll find some inspiring and touching maxims. A brilliant approach, incredibly well executed.

2. Non-Format - Love Song
Kjell Ekhorn and Jon Forss
Publisher: DGV
ISBN: 9783899551853
Price: £35
The design duo behind CA 163's cover have a truly brilliant body of work. We guarantee that on every page you'll find something that amazes, delights or inspires. From Non-Format's stunning type work for Nike to the slick art direction for The Wire magazine, this is a collection of work you need to have near you at all times. Our only complaint: where's the next part? This book only covers the duo's work from 1999 to 2003.
