My friends need to stop writing so many books

Wanted to call out these five books in my ever-growing To Read pile because they’d all make good gift books, they’re all by friends of mine who are super-smart visual thinkers, and they’re all either about — and/or excellent examples of — turning ideas into stories, pictures, or explanations that connect with an audience.
