Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’
Thomas J. Watson Jr., IBM CEO

Design Books – Flickr Sets

Flickr may be annoying many times (especially since you can’t post images larger than 1024px anymore – unless you go pro), but it sure holds a lot of great stuff. Insect54 (gotta love web2.0 nicknames :P) hosts a few gems, photo sets of some great design books, most of them about the insanely talented dutch designers.

Take a look:

Take your time, watch how things should be done. Learn if you can.
And as always, normal designers copy, great designers steal ;)
