My interest in the suckless projects happen after I read The Art of
Unix Programming. It would be my recomendation for you.

It states priciples such as 'programs should do one thing only and do
this thing well'. This kind of principle guides lots of basic programs
in the *nix systems, I think dwm, dmenu, st and slock are the graphical
programs that does their things only and well for me.

Good luck with you work,
