Help Save The Dover Bookshop
This shop is amazing!
I mean utterly wonderful and a joy to ferret around.
There are books full of fonts, books full of paper toys to cut out and make (these are what I bought this week).
And illustrations of anything you can name. In fact go in and challenge Mark and the team to find what ever takes your fancy. They won't disappoint.
"The Dover Bookshop needs our help! Every designer I know has used a Dover book at some point and their amazingly resourceful books grace the shelves of many a swanky design studio, yet they're in trouble and need the support of the design community to keep going.
For those who aren't familiar with The Dover Bookshop, shame on you! Long before you could drag reference images off the internet, The Dover Bookshop was a wealth of copyright and permission-free imagery and a huge source of inspiration.
They've been selling their range of pictorial archive books in Covent Garden for 25 years, but are struggling to survive the recession. Please buy even just one book from here to help keep this wonderful institution around for another 25 years!" post via Delicious Industries
