Good MySQL book for database design

I'm looking for a solid text on designing databases, if possible, specifically with MySQL. I'm not looking for anything that goes over PHP, Python or Perl programming with databases. Just solid fundamentals on how to build a scalable database schema.

I'd like to add one to my library but everything I've seen is either too mundane, or too abstract.

Would any of you experts happen to have that one book that you always reference and cannot live without?

I'll spread out points for whatever I end up putting on my book shelf via Amazon. :-)

MySQL cookbook doesn't really cover database design at all, I already have it.
