  3. Evolving Styles - the New flash Hard Cover edition of PIMP magazine.
  4. Bucky Works by J Baldwin - about the life and works of the wonderful Buckminster Fuller
  5. Body Worlds Catalogue on the exhibition - god damn this Dr. Von Hagen is scary, but truly incredible, and this book has fantastic photographs of all the best exhibits.
  6. Notes Towards the Definition of Culture - maily just in there for show - none of us can claim to have actually read it!
  7. The naked Ape by Desmond Morris
  8. Getting things Done by David Allen
