There are numerous design magazines and websites and blogs that keep you updated with current design trend, but if you have to pick just one book that gives you a great feel for what's going on in the field of graphic design today, I would highly recommend the Publication Design Annual.

I like editorial graphic design annuals over other graphic design annuals for a few reasons:

1. It is undoubtedly an excellent source of inspirations for graphic design and art direction.

2. It showcases some of the best in photography, illustration, typography, layout designs, and even digital publications of today.

3. It gives you a great overview of events that went on in society and in the world during that particular year, and how art directors and designers decided to present them in their work.

Having said that though, I personally felt that designs showcased in the previous year's annual (45th Publication Design Annual) seemed more refreshing than this one. Also, as some designs win several categories, those designs are repeatedly shown. (They could probably organize the content a little differently and save some tree...)

Still, this is one of the best design annual series and I'm already looking forward to the next year's edition!
