add this to your christmas list

A new book that I absolutely must own! But with my current lack of finances, maybe I’ll just settle for sneaking a peek at in the bookstore. (Although at $17.33 on Amazon.ca it’s actually super affordable!)

The Under Consideration guys (Byrony Gomez-Palacio and Armin Vit) have put this what seems to be amazing book together: Women of Design.

The immense body of work produced by graphic designers around the world is astoundingly varied, rich and widely celebrated. Yet in publications, conferences and other public realms, women designers tend to be outnumbered by their male counterparts whose appearances, work and achievements are constantly in the spotlight. Luckily, it’s a reversing trend. While this book does not attempt to relieve the imbalance, it does bring full attention to the wonderful work, careers and contributions of women designers, writers, teachers and entrepreneurs around the world.

Here are a couple of snapshots, there are a few more on the site linked above.
