The Faber & Faber book has lots of gorgeous book covers I want to study (Guardian review here):



Matthew Rice has written and drawn a usually-informative but occasionally very cheeky book about architectural terms, something I always mean to know more about, since I've forgotten them all since college. (The Independent's review here.)



On that last image, he hasn't put all that many tags, but he has labelled the poodle, and written: There are very few details to describe here - but after all, that's what Modernism is all about: clean lines and proportion. Yeah, tell that to a builder. But a nice drawing, all the same.
