Playpen has been a little quiet recently because I’ve had my folks over from the UK and a heap of work on, one of which is The Designers Review of Books, a website/blog I’m putting together that will purely review design books - or rather books for designers. I know several design sites out there have the occasional book review, but there doesn’t appear to be a central place that I have found.

With some design help from Matt Willis (and the lovely Buffet Script from Sudtipos) the design is nearly there, but needs some Wordpress integration, etc.

Once it’s up and running I’ll be announcing it properly and also looking for guest reviewers.
