A good book was written about this back in the late 80s by
the bloke who taught us about digital design. I forget the title,
but the author is Peter Thewlis and the book was published by
the Oxford University Press. Takes you all the way from the
basics of how to build various flip-flops to how to build
registers and an ALU. Excellent fun :)
