Reading list


It’s worth noting that most of the graphic design-related books listed here are not available from the LCF library but you can borrow books from any library within the University. In fact I highly recommend you spend some time at some of the other colleges’ libraries. University library locations are listed here.

The college codes used below are CSM (Central St Martin’s, Southampton Row unless otherwise stated), CHE (Chelsea), CAM (Camberwell), LCC (London College of Communication) & WIM (Wimbledon). The shelfmark is the location of the book within the library & the UAL Library link will take you to the book’s page on the library website. The ISBN number link will take you to the Google Books (UK) page for that book. I’ve included a Buy from Amazon.co.uk link that you can use to buy the book. The site receives a small commission from Amazon for doing this which is used to keep it running (hosting fees etc.)
