Graphic Design Theory book Inspiration

I have been looking at other book design for inspiration. I am interested in classically styled paragraphs for legibility and elegant form. I don't want this book to be busy. I'm not interested in adding imagery as I don't think it is always necessary. Especially for a specialized book such as this. I see it as more of an intimate text with essays from highly regarded people in our field. It would be viewed by graphic designers who I think sometimes need space to think without imagery when it comes to reading. Here are some images I found inspiration from. They all have nicely formed paragraphs. I especially like the New York Giants excerpt for it's elegant simplicity.
