There are only a few books that are universally loved by those of us helming this website, and Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca's Afrodisiac is one of them. It was our March Book of the Month, and it turns out we aren't the only ones to lavish praise upon it. Afrodisiac, published by AdHouse Books, has won an AIGA Award for being one of the 50 best designed books in 2009. AIGA is the "professional association for design", and this isn't just for comic book design, but all book design, and I'm telling you about it, because I still love the book, think it deserves even more awards, as well as even more of your attention. Seriously, go get it.
Plus, the design really is spectacular. Those design guys aren't wrong.
