The 4-hour workweek – Timothy Ferriss

Helvetica: Homage to a Typeface – Lars Muller
“My uncle bought it for my 18th birthday, he’s a creative director who loves Helvetica. It really opens your eyes to the power of the font Helvetica.”
Human Acts – Han Kang
“A beautifully written book, translated from Korean. This book is incredibly powerful and tells the emotional stories of South Korean survivors of the (real) Gwangju 1980’s uprising. Each chapter switches to a different character’s point-of-view, which makes it a book full of individual stories that together build one horrific, devastating yet beautiful tale of a real-life uprising.”
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs
“The tale of a young boy and the supernatural beings that roam this fantasy world unseen. Or at least unseen until his grandfather dies, which is when he begins his journey to uncover the truth.”
Pharrell: Places and Spaces I’ve been – Pharrell Williams
“I really like the original lookbooks from Billionaire Boys Club and some of the interviews with famous people like Jay-Z. The pictures in the book give you a cool insight of when N.E.R.D were touring. Plus the section on Kaws is incredible.”

Whimsical, informative and game-changing. This book is so much more than an excuse to (hypothetically) punch a dolphin in the mouth. What does the author have against dolphins, they’re adorable?
