Counterprint might be the best design bookstore ever. Based in the UK but shipping worldwide.

One of the best places to find design books is the design section of the Rizzoli Bookstore. If you can, also go to the brick and mortar store IRL in NYC; you can easily spend hours browsing, leaving reluctantly only when security tells you they’re closing and yes, you really do have to leave now. Speaking from personal experience.

Museums are one of the best sources of design books. Check out bookstores at SFMOMA, NYC’s MoMA, the Cooper Hewitt, Poster House, to name a few

Many design books are published by one of a few big publishers, like MIT Press, Phaidon, and Taschen, and you can shop from them directly

Standards Manual has a physical location in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NYC

Some tech companies have their own imprint, like Stripe Press
