Known for producing some of the nicest art and design books published today, Taschen made a big move with the introduction of their Bibliotheca Universalis collection. Substantial in every way except size, these compact hardcover volumes are a “go to” for creative professionals and anyone who appreciates beautiful book design. This set of three focuses on two design essentials: form and function. Industrial Design A-Z features commercial designs from Apple through inventor Ferdinand von Zeppelin; Logo Design overflows with graphic design inspiration; and The Complete Manual of Typography is a meticulous reprint of Giambattista Bodoni’s 1818 masterwork.
