A Coincidence?

The DAY after I ordered these books, Thinking with Type and Designing Brand Identity I received the news I was being laid off.

When my boss told me the news, I literally felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. The weight of working in an industry I wasn't passionate about. Having just decided I wanted to shift the focus of my career from PR to graphic design, it's perfect timing.

In addition to buying these books, I hunted for a Adobe Creative Suite CS3. I finally got it last night. Whether I bought it, found it on my doorstep or downloaded from the Internet, it's going to be a big help in order to hone my skills(and theys need some honing!).

Does anyone have suggestions for staple design guides?
