Hello /gd/. Is anyone else on this board aware of Roger Walton's Typographics book series? They're these awesome design books from the 90's that are simply gorgeous. I have the second one and I'll provide some images. Recently I ordered the other 3 and I'll post scans of those once I receive them in a couple of days. Considering how slow this board is, I don't think it'll be a problem for you guys to wait a couple of days.

Anyways, I'd like to ask if you guys know of an online resource I can find more books like these (preferably scanned and for free lol). Maybe even a repository where I can find the names of similar books. Some simple suggestions would be fine too. Thanks!

Typographics always gave me feeling of it being for boomer graphic designers wanting to be hip and fans of Carson, very US-centric too. It's kinda feeling I get from all of Walton's books. Though could give them another shot.

First good thread in a while though, OP

I’ve only seen Typographics 1 & 2 and enjoyed them both. Also I just ordered this bad boy as well lol. I don’t mind if they’re not as good as you describe them since I got them really cheap. Got any recommendations for better /gd/ books?

Ok boys I'm still fucking waiting for T3 & T4 which come together, but I got them extra cheap from a seller on Amazon who uses the worst goddamn shipping. Anyways here's a mini dump of Typographics 1.

I Want the World and Ease the Pressure CD boxes for 2WO THIRD3 designed by Paula Benson and Paul West. One thing I like about T1 so far is that it actually has descriptions unlike T2.

Another book by Roger Walton. This one's more of a manual to design letterhead and stationery for mail. Could have some decent insight.

Another great book called Emotional Digital. This one's actually not by Roger Walton, but it's still very similar to Typographics. Forgot to mention, but you can actually download some of these archive books if they allow you to borrow for 14 days. This is one of the ones you can get a pdf for.

Sorry bro I don't have one in my apartment rn, but I'll be home with my family in a week if you still really want them scanned.

Here are some other great books I reccomend from Taschen. Good publisher overall. These 3 are from Julius Weidemann and are based on website designs. Picrel is from Web Design: Music Sites.

yes of course, please do

These look super interesting, thank you!

Thank you for introducing me to these books, OP.
They look awesome.

If someone is interested on HQ scans, you can read them on Archive.org (select "Borrow for 1 hour").
You can download them with ChromeCacheView, but it's a little time consuming.
