I don't think that I have written about a book before on The Collective Loop, so this will be a first. The book Symbol by Angus Hyland and Steven Bateman ($40) is a book that features over 1300 symbols, organized into groups and sub-groups according to their visual characteristics. Each category includes a short introduction, with expanded captions providing information on who the symbol was designed for, who designed it, when, and where appropriate, what the symbol stands for. The book is 366 pages with 1400 illustrations of symbols to get your design motivation kicking.

Below are some videos of Angus Hyland talking about the book Symbol. It's quite interesting because he talks about old school versions of companies symbols to now. It's a five part series and if you would like to watch the rest they are available here.
