I Miss My Pencil

I Miss My Pencil

By Martin Bone and Kara Johnson
Chronicle Books; 240 pages; $50


A design exercise in its own right, this book features the musings and experiments of two co-workers at innovation consultancy IDEO. With a ton of glossy images and an innovative interior book design—reproductions of the authors' instant message conversations are included—the book wouldn't be out of place on a coffee table, but also shows the design and innovation process in all its messy glory.
