In our rebooting of Arbenting, another of our articles that was really popular with the community was a collection of free design ebooks that got traffic from all over the web. In fact, people still search for it today. So we decided that waiting to get this post redone was somewhat cruel and unusual punishment to those still coming in looking for it. So welcome back.
In all honesty, this post really benefited from an update! Today there are some fantastic design related ebooks available that weren’t around when the original post was put together. So getting to feature virtually a whole new crew of books helps to keep the post up to date, and current. Now we’re able to offer books on general design, freelance design, game design, web design and more!
