    (web)design books

    I often buy designbooks such as the webdesign index, webdesign index by content and a few from Taschen. They are basically a showcase of the best (web)designs around the globe. Nothing more, nothing less. So just screenshots.

    I like those books. It's inspiring and fun to see trends troughout the years.

    Now I am wondering if that is all there is. I am especially interested in:
    - Webdesign
    - Graphic Design
    - Logo design.

    Do you guys know some titles / publishers that have these kind of books? Anything is welcome.

    Why would you want to spend money on books that showcase screenshots of design when you could go to any one of the thousands of web design galleries online for free and get all the best sites out there?

    All-American Ads are a pretty good series from Taschen, if you're into vintage design from the 1920s onwards. They're quite expensive though.

    Dos Logos and its predecessor also make for good inspiration.

    None of those are web related, however. For websites, I think it's better to look for examples online in the gazillion galleries out there. In my experience you get better inspiration by things that are not related to websites per se, though, such as typography and the like. A good place for that is ILoveTypography or Typophile. Another good resource is DesignObserver.
