For todays post I thought I feature my LONG list of books I'd love to add to my design library.
With the Aussie dollar doing so well against the Yankee dollar at the moment it's actually cheaper to buy books online at Amazon.com including postage from the U.S than the astronomical prices they charge at Borders.
While I was browsing Amazon last night these are the books that appealed to me. If any of you have any of these books and can offer me a recommendation or if you know of one or two not being that great I'd really appreciate the feedback :)
The two books above I actually plan on purchasing this weekend as I head up to our holiday house. I know my favourite store Veranda stocks these imports. There is only one Veranda store in Sydney and unfortunately it's over an hour away from me so I only get to visit when I travel up north for holidays. This is also the only store I know of who stocks these exquisite books.
The next 7 above look to be stunning books just by their titles and covers.
I LOVE Betty Lou Phillips! Her books are some of my favourites. This will be my 5th BLP book and judging by the gorgeous cover I'm sure it will not disappoint :)
^^I can't get enough of my French country style books :)
And I thought I'd throw a Tuscan style book in the mix for something different.
The next 4 books above are must haves I know. I've tried so hard to get Kelly Wearstler's book but it sells out so quickly and you can't get it anywhere in Oz.
As a design student the remaining books on my list would be very handy books to own as well as beautiful and interesting.
So thats it - finally lol. Of course these all wont be purchased at the same time but I will get there eventually lol. My love for design books is a scary obsession but I guess there are worse things I could be spending my money on :)
