As in the title, has there been a book released about motivation behind the choices in material design? I would like to read why and how some choices were made.


No, there is not a book or more in depth explanation behind each design decision in material design.

It is based on three principles and all other decisions (arguably) follow those rules:

  1. Material is the metaphor
  2. Be bold, graphic, intentional
  3. Provide meaning with motion
