By The Book

DAVID SUTHERLAND spends his days immersed in design, so it’s no surprise that his library reflects his passion and his life’s work. “As with most people in the design industry I am a visual person. The prettier the picture, the more I believe about the product and the more likely I am to purchase something. Print books are educational and informative for me.” Here are some of his current favorites.
