We’ve been hard at work stocking the TSA Bookshelf. There are lots of new titles in there from independently published zines to top selling design books. We’ll be adding new books often along with some sorting functionality, as the resource grows.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed. For details on how to add yours, click here.

For her final project at the University of Applied Sciences in Augsburg, Germany, Maria Fischer created Traumgedanken.
The book “Traumgedanken” (“Thoughts on dreams”) contains a collection of literary, philosophical, psychological and scientifical texts which provide an insight into different dream theories.
To ease the access to the elusive topic, the book is designed as a model of a dream about dreaming. Analogue to a dream, where pieces of reality are assembled to build a story, it brings different text excerpts together. They are connected by threads which tie in with certain key words. The threads visualise the confusion and fragileness of dreams.
Stumbled on this very cool publisher/font bureau (of sorts) from France, called Éditions 205. It took some effort to dissect who’s behind this, but after a little digging around sources point to Damien Gautier and likely a few other writers/designers. The books they create are beautiful; keep an eye out for one or two being added to our Bookshelf.
