People often ask us where we get our ideas, and how we come up with new designs.  Inspiration comes from many different sources, so there are a lot of answers to that question.  As artists and designers we like to continually feed our senses in a variety of ways so that when it comes time to create something new we have all of those images and experiences to pull from.  One of those things that feeds our senses are visually interesting books.  We love pretty books, and we’ve rounded up quite a collection.  It’s time to share.
