It's finally time to get to summer reading. Here's a look at the books—plus reading paraphernalia—on our list. Above: Edited by Joanne Dugan, Summertime is a "photography book about the essence of summer" with images by 46 photographers from around the world. Cover photograph by Cig Harvey. A  balancing bookshelf  that allows you to measure how many books you've finished versus how many are wait to be read. One of Meredith's favorite magazines right now is  Frame , a design periodical from Amsterdam. Our favorite book bag? The  Ballast Bookbag  from Erik Heywood of Oakland, CA's  Book/Shop  is made from 1930s Belgian canvas and Japanese vegetable-tanned leather. Weekend project:  DIY bookshelf . We're only halfway through 2014, but so far here are the best graphic design books of the year. A  British magazine  about makers and doers. Above: Margot and Alexa are both looking forward to the new collaborative work, W omen in Clothes , by Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits, and Leanne Shapton. Attention print and pattern enthusiasts: you must read  The Print Revolution . We're still pouring over 300 pages of DIYs and design ideas from our friends at  Young House Love . Above: The perfect beach chair? The Tra an Doilin Deck Chair from Gallant & Jones. Dalilah just picked up Vampires in the Lemon Grove by Karen Russell. (The insomniacs among us are reading Russell's new novella, Sleep Donation .) ABCDCS: David Collins  is a new coffee table book from the portfolio of the late Irish architect and designer. What's better—the book or the movie? Here's a roundup of good reads  slated for the big screen.
