graphic design booksNarita Inspected
Raw Fish, as it is translated, is far more than a compilation of contemporary Japanese graphic design. Next to the graphics, the book presents and portrays the artists in their personal living and working environment, i.e. usually one small room. In Raw Fish, Swiss designer Lopetz explores how Japanese culture and way-of-life mould the very particular aesthetics which uniquely sways between Japanese tradition and Western influence, between playful and at the same time puristic, reduced and perfect. An overall amazing compendium of modern styles featuring everything from character animation and macro photography to identity and type design. But don't just take our word for it: check out a preview of almost the entire book. (192pp).

		booksDesign by Numbers
Practicing what he preaches, Maeda composed Design By Numbers using a computational process he developed specifically for the book. He introduces a programming language and development environment, available on the Web, which can be freely downloaded or run directly within any JAVA-enabled Web browser. Appropriately, the new language is called DBN (for "design by numbers"). Designed for "visual" people--artists, designers, anyone who likes to pick up a pencil and doodle--DBN has very few commands and consists of elements resembling those of many other languages, such as LISP, LOGO, C/JAVA, and BASIC.
