What is classic "patterns" book?

Dear Experts,

Please excuse me for putting this question in this forum...

I have heard several references to a "classic" programming-patterns book.  (It's not Thinking in Patterns by Bruce Eckel--it's older than that.)  I know the publisher is Addison-Wesley, but I can't remember the title or author.

Anybody know it?

Thanks,

Please excuse me again, but I have found the book.   It's "Design Patterns" by Erich Gamma, et. al.  However, it a "cook book", rather than tutorial.  Could anyone recommend a good tutorial for someone (me) who already understands the basics of OOP, but wants to become more sophisticated in design?

Thanks,

Reading that and thinking about things would be enough to get you 'thinking in patterns'.
