"Logo Design Love" - A book for logo lovers

I was just starting out as a graphic designer when I found this book "Logo Design Love". The book was a quick read and the author - David Airey writes in easy to understand and clear sentences.

I was inspired not just by the book and the design examples it contained, but also the book design itself, which led me to find out how aspiring an author is as a designer and not just a writer.
