building seagramSo many books, so little time. Designers & Books is there to help you keep up with the latest releases and burrow into the backlists for those life-changing titles that you may have missed. The site has looked back on 2013 and selected its first ever Design Book of the Year: Phyllis Lambert‘s Building Seagram (Yale University Press), a comprehensive personal and scholarly history of New York’s Seagram Building. The $1,500 honorarium will be split equally among the book’s author, editor, and designer.

Honorable mentions were awarded to The Houses of Louis Kahn (Yale University Press) and the splendid Ed Ruscha tribute volume Various Small Books (MIT Press).
