Top Design Books for the Year

Fast Company magazine has compiled a list of what they feel are the top books about architecture and design last year. Designers probably have many of them in their collection already but there might be a few you missed.

Included are "Look Both Ways" (left) by Debbie Millman and "Design Your Life" (right) by Ellen and Julia Lupton.

Other books include "Design Revolution" by Emily Pilloton,
"The Language of Things" by Deyan Sudjic,
and "The Design of Business" by Roger Martin in which he explains why design thinking is the next competitive advantage for businesses.

Readers, of course, are starting to chime in on what is missing from the list. Were there no good books about fashion design last year, for example?
