We tend to read a lot around here and a while ago decided we wanted a way to let our visitors know of books that we thought were insightful, beneficial, or inspirational within the field of design. In the past we would occasionally post a small write up of a book or even a film that we wanted to recommend on our blog. However, as the posts were already infrequent, over time they would get lost within the news, updates, and other finds that we share. 

So as part of a larger group of updates, we’ve revisited the idea of our suggested readings, taken the few books and films already listed, added several recommendations, and collected them on a single site. We think this will provide our visitors a simple way to discover and purchase the same things that brought some inspiration into our studio. Hopefully you will as well.
