Books on Design

Bill Buxton

Last updated:  March 4th, 2021.


This page contains a list of the books on design in my library.  It is at the same time an expanded and up-to-date version of the bibliography of my book, Sketching User Experiences.

All titles are sorted by author.  As I have time, I will start to build a kind of guide that helps one find related titles, provide annotations, and otherwise help the interested reader navigate through the list.  For the time being, I hope that the bare list has some value.

As always, questions, suggestions, etc. are welcome.
