The action is quick. The ‚NEW‘ tag directs my steps to the transparent shelf with the top new boks in the library. The first book that I see has:
- yelow background cover
- big, white and fat number 79
- long list of black titles, each one written with the different font
- straightforward title Seventy-nine Short Essays on Design
Everything is clear now, this must be the book on design ( I reassure myself that it belongs to the industrial design section), therefore fits for the project. I look at the hopefully new publishing date, and this is the only dissapointing moment: 2007. I can‘t find any newer design book on the top new books shelf. The title of the very first essay sais: Warning: May Contain Non-Design Content. If the librairians would read all the books they get, how should they react to such statement? What the amount of the Non-Design Content would move the book out from the design section? What date would put it out from the top new books shelf?
