Women of Design

Don't recognize enough of these names? This book will fix that.

Women of Design: Influence and Inspiration from the Original Trailblazers to the New Groundbreakers by Bryony Gomez-Palacio and Armin Vit (from How Books) showcases female ‘designers, writers, teachers and entrepreneurs from around the world’ who are often crowded out of other books on the subject. The book spans three generations from Barbara Kruger to Nagi Noda, and the site links to more on each of the women featured inside. We especially like the influence chart (above).
