I ANYONE wanted to buy me something that would make me worship the ground they walk on, the Phaidon Design Classics would be the thing.

This is a series of three volumes that contain 999 of the modern design classics. It’s one of those things that you have around, you pick up, and you go “wow”.

But at between $75 – $100, $420 it’s pretty darn low on the priority list right now.
