Isn't it fun to pick up a book on a topic which one knows little to nothing and a few hours later close the book knowing quite a lot? That was my experience with Chip Kidd's book, Go: A Kidd's Guide to Graphic Design. It is an easy book to read and digest. It even gives the budding graphic designer ten projects to get started. The YouTube video trailer makes the book seem like it is just for little kids but this big person found in it a lot to like and I learned so much. I recommend it for kids from 8 to 88.
