Weekly Wrap-Up & Preview: February 7

February 7, 2014

This week, we published our fourth book list in collaboration with the breakfast lecture series CreativeMornings, inspired by the series’ February theme of “Rebel.” Together with AIGA/NY, we hosted our first-ever “live online” book signing, with a designer always willing to try something new—Stefan Sagmeister. We’ll have photos next week to show you what went on. Next week also brings a book list from frog design founder Hartmut Esslinger and we announce the winner of the Designers & Books first annual Design Book of the Year Award.
