I was hoping to have a look at all of the current design studios in the London area. I have the 2011 edition of the D&AD annual, but does anyone know if there is a library that I can borrow some of the past years' editions of the books?
The British Library has a copy of every book published so perhaps try there. You do know the D&AD annual isn't a comprehensive list of design agencies don't you? It's just a small selection of some of the best work produced by some of the agencies & designers registered as D&AD members working worldwide. So if you're looking for details of all design agencies in London, you'd have more luck with a copy of the phone directory.
