NOTE ︎︎︎ The Reading List, selections from the bookshelves including group readings, self-education and sentimental copies

This is a growing list of formative and collected works. Anything with an asterisk* next to it is either signed or part of the collector’s permanent library. This is by no means an exhaustive list and not every item on the collector’s bookshelf is listed here, and recommendations are always welcome [email them to mail@daax.world] as are reading group invitations.
