About: No.2 in a series of self published ‘Spin Papers’, which profiles the top 10 reading lists from a broad range of legendary and notable designers of the time.
(Introduction) “The great things about books – besides the way they look, smell and feel – is that they can set off sparks in your mind and fires in your heart. It might be fair to say the books, periodicals and magazines listed here have moved, inspired, educated and possibly changed the lives of their readers. Let's hope they have a similar effect on you.
This has been one of the most exciting and satisfying things I have done. The response from so many gifted designers has been truly humbling. I had no right to intrude into their busy lives and a great debt of thanks is owed to each and every one of them. They have given their time and consideration to a project that will not benefit them in any way (other than the thought that they might help someone else). Despite being a complete pain, I received nothing but encouragement and kind words from start to finish, even from designers who didn't wish to contribute. The result is a record of one of the most precious things a designer can offer (outside their work) — the sources of their inspiration.” Tony Brook Spin
