Bookshelf: What We’re Reading

9 March 2012

For our second installment collecting all that surrounds us in the wonderful world of books:

Typo Latino is a compendium of type by Latin authors, including insight into their creation process and suggested use. Moving over to Berlin, Freunde Von Freunden: Berlin is a tome celebrating Berlin creatives and their living spaces. And NYTimes writer Charles Duhigg writes about the science of habit in our lives, workplaces, and communities in his new book. Finally, we came across this wonderful “Booklovers Map of America Showing Certain Landmarks of Literary Geography.”

108 eighth-grade students at REALM Charter School in Berkeley, CA took charge of their own library and designed X-Space. The activity was part of the school’s Studio H initiative, an in-school curriculum that encourages students to build socially-engaged projects. Yearning for a place to study, relax, and learn, the students conceived X-Space as a warm and welcoming place for  discovering “X.” The library has specially designed X-shaped stackable “STAX” that were made with plywood and CNC technology. To help fund books, construction materials, lighting, fixtures and technology donate to Studio H’s Kickstarter until March 27.
