Subject: RE: 17.478 fundamental books
It occurs to me that you might be looking here not necessarily for books
that provide a survey, but rather for books that are in some way seminal or
key to understanding an area. An example I have in mind for interface
design theory (my own field) is Winograd and Flores. (1987). Understanding
Computers and Cognition. I'd recommend this to any academic reader
interested in thinking about interfaces. In visual communication design
(not on your list, yet), I would similarly suggest Frascara. (1997).
User-centred Graphic Design. But perhaps you were hoping for something more
recent, or I've got the idea wrong entirely.
