12 Must Have Books For Creatives

I love books. Which shouldn’t be surprising since my world centers around the written word. If there is one question I get asked frequently (more than my favorite paint colors) is what are the must have books for a design library? Well, first let me share that I have a diverse collection, I collect vintage design books, but I also love well-curated fashion tomes (there is a fine line between the world of fashion & the furnishings industry). I love books that capture iconic design on glossy pages, and I adore biographies. What makes a great designer tick? At times, an author will capture the very essence of the creative and reveal it for all to see. Demystifying the woman or man behind the mask. Those are the books I love to read.

So I thought I would share 12 must have books for the creative, designer, fashion devotee, travel seeker & foodie just in time for the holidays…
