I've seen a lot of books written about design firms, but few are better than tellmewhy, written about the small rag-tag design firm of KarlssonWilker. The book mixes a hilarious commentary documenting the history of the company, along with their design work from every step of the way. In many ways, their brilliantly irreverant work seems to have taken the torch from Tibor Kalman. Recommended.
