About our collection

The library is endeavouring to build up a collection of current, up-to-the-minute books on graphics, to meet the demand from designers and students in this area. These are the new titles we have recently added to the collection. It's not always easy keeping up with what's absolutely current though, so if you have any suggestions please let us know through our online suggestion to buy form.
