Logobook

Remember the Academy Award-winning animated short Logorama? If you do, you probably know that there was an astounding number of corporate and product logos in the 16-minute film, and those obviously took a lot of research to piece together. Logobook ($35) is the result. Penned by the film's co-director Ludovic Houplain, this massive, 800-page tome features over 7,000 of the logos, organized alphabetically, and accompanied by info about the designers, year of creation, and what country they came from, as well as info on the brand and company. Add in an essay on brand culture and an introduction explaining the creation of the film, and you've got a must-have for any brand/identity/design geek.

  • A Curious Man

    Believe it or not, in the early 1900s much of our knowledge of the strange and exotic came from one man. A curious man, if you will. A Curious Man: The Strange and Brilliant Life of Robert "Believe It or Not!" Ripley ($15) takes a look at the life and times of the cartoonist, millionaire, and champion of the weird, wild, and unexplainable. From his eponymous museums to the celebration of the weird in pop culture, Ripley's legacy is far more than you might think — dare we say it, even more than you might believe.

  • Information Graphics

    With all the information we have to absorb in this modern life, it's basically impossible to go through a day without seeing some form of info graphic. Still, have you ever given any thought to how they're made, or where they came from? Information Graphics ($50) covers both the history of visualizing data to the current masters of the craft, complete with hundreds of images — each with explanatory text — historical essays, and even a 26.5" x 19" poster by Nigel Homes, former graphics director for Time.
