Phaidon Design Classics for the Apple iPad

Phaidon

Way back in our formative years of 2006, we feature what's still a must-have series of books – the Phaidon Design Classics. Well, times change, as does technology, so in 2010 you can now pick up Phaidon Design Classics for the iPad.

It really does look stunning, almost (but not quite) tempting us into investing in Apple's much-hyped tablet. For your money, you get the history of (primarily) 20th century design, just about everything worth owning with 1,000 timeless designs in full colour from the giants of our age, all in chronological order and in this version, rendered stunningly in 3D.

If you've got an iPad (or plan on doing so soon), Phaidon is doing the book conversion for $19.99 initially. Or you can still opt for the traditional book set, which is priced at £100.
