Hello Ludwig,

Martin Fowler's books are not bad in this aspect
see http://www.martinfowler.com/books.html

I would also recommend Fowler.

but I will add

Domain Driven Design, Eric Evans
Applying Domain Driven Design and Patterns, Jimmy Nilsson

Besides Fowler, I recommend Robert C. Martin's "Agile Software Development.
Principles, Patterns, and Practices", which will be re-released for C# later
this year.

Object Oriented Software Construction, Volume 2 by Bertrand Meyer.
Based on Eiffel rather than C# but a really fine read.

There's a group called 'comp.object' that will be glad to get into a
gang brawl in answering your question. <g>

I think that object-oriented software and design patterns are related
but not necessarily synonymous. With this caveat, I'd recommend
taking a look at Riel's "Object Oriented Design Heuristics" for the
former. Also Wirfs-Brock's "Object Design - Roles, Responsibilities,
and Collaborations", which gets close to the modern way of thinking
about objects.

For Design Patterns, many like the approach taken in OReilly's "Head
First Design Patterns" (see Amazon reviews) but take a look
first--it's not for everyone. Check Shalloway's "Design Patterns
Explained." GOF is more of a reference for after you've got the
basics.

And after that, Martin Fowler's "Refactoring" has some good pointers,
but Kerievsky's "Refactoring to Patterns" is brilliant.
