As you all know I have a great love for all that is Italian. I also think we can all agree that this is not one of those crazy unjustifiable loves; this is an affair based on quality, content and above all excellence in all matters design. I know, I know there are other great design nations, I am not saying that there aren't. I am simply saying that I prefer to focus on the Italian design geniuses. With that out of the way , this morning I came across the new book of Aldo Rossi Drawings (Thames & Hudson ). The book contains more than three decades of sketches, concepts and watercolours until his death in 1997. Do yourselves a favor: get it. The book is really well put toghether and the content is pretty inspiring. www.thameshudson.com
