    He wrote it in the 60's but it is still really relevant.

    You can buy it from here for example, if you should be interested:

    graphic design theory (various) is a good collection of essays from thre inception of the field (basically) to present day.

    How to be a graphic designer without losing your soul and studio culture by Adrian Shaugnessy are good looks into the job / business / freelance side of things and are essential imho.

    this a book definitely worth buying

    Explorations in Typography: Mastering the Art of Fine Typesetting



    The book is primarily a teaching device, which de Bartolo created “specifically for more advanced typographic study”. She is serious about the book’s potential as a textbook, including advice for both teachers and students on how best to use the book. The depth to which the explorations go is beyond the interest of the non-designer and probably most neophyte designers. This is a book for people who care deeply about text design and typesetting — and for those who are required to care about it, in the case of students. For those of us who fit at least one of those descriptions, “Explorations in Typography” is a valuable resource, and a reminder of the extensive possibilities of digital typesetting. It’s also pleasing, and motivating, to page through the book and study the evolving settings of the text.

    Edward Tufte books. It was a required purchase back in art school. But I was poor so I borrowed them instead of buying

    Here are some more off-beat ones that I like. All are available on Amazon:

    Designing Type by Karen Cheng
    There's a lot of books dealing with typesetting, but this one actually gets really into the nitty gritty of typeface design. It gives you deeper knowledge, and also it's really useful when you need to construct logotypes from scratch or heavily modify existing ones.

    Symbol by Angus Hyland
    This one is just a book of monochrome symbols. But it's one of those books that is good to flip through when you're in need of general logo inspiration.

    Principles of Form and Design by Wucius Wu
    This one is a really off the beaten track book. It's extremely academic. But if you're looking to get a better grasp on a lot of skills we as designers we do intuitively (visual hierarchy, contrast, dynamic composition) this is one you might want to check out.
