HOLIDAY BUYS: DESIGN BOOKS PART THREE

We’re back with more wonderful books to keep you entertained over the holiday period. Just like this mornings post, this collection comes to you from the always inspiring London Design Museum Shop.

  • Hansel and Gretel Pop Up Book – This is a beautiful keepsake. The illustrations and the pop up features would make a great gift for story time transporting children into a magical world. Find out more here.
  • Fifty Cars, Chairs & Dresses that changed the world – All three books from this series are filled with design icons and are a perfect gift for the design fanatic in your life. From the Ford Model T to famous Breakfast At Tiffany’s dress, you’ll find plenty of inspiration. Find out more about cars, chairs or dresses.
  • The Packaging and Design Templates Sourcebook 2 – The absolute perfect book for anyone in the design industry. It’s filled with templates for all sorts of packaging and even includes a CD with editable EPS files. Fantastic. Find out more here.
  • ReadyMade: How To Make (Almost) Everything – We have this book and it’s brilliant. So many cute, clever and quirky ideas to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary. Find out more here.
  • Tim Burton –  We’ve been fans of Tim Burtons work for a long time. His work is mysterious, beautiful and scary which always makes for an exciting product. This book is like an insight into his mind. Find out more here.
  • Designed for Kids – There’s millions of kids products out there but very few that have been designed with both form and function in mind. This book explores the stylish, innovation and functional products designed for kids. Find out more here.
  • Designs for Small Spaces – I am fascinated and intrigued by small spaces and would one day love to own a tiny place that we can design to incorporate all the function and style that a home three times the size would have. In the meantime I love books like this that share my passion for small spaces. They say good things come in small packages and being 5ft I’d have to agree. Find out more here.
