‘The MacOS App Icon Book’ by Michael Flarup

Speaking of Kickstarter projects, Michael Flarup is working on a sequel to his outstanding The iOS App Icon Book — this one dedicated to Mac app icons. Given my interests, I’d have been delighted by The iOS App Icon Book even if it had merely been pretty good. But it’s a splendid book — carefully curated, exquisitely well-designed, and very nicely printed and bound. It’s no small trick to reproduce icons meant for screens in a printed book. The iOS App Icon Book is also very well-written and considered, particularly regarding the seminal design shift introduced by iOS 7 in 2013.

So a sibling volume dedicated to Mac app icons? Hell yes.
