Informational Affairs is an ever-growing index of books collected by Folder Studio. The collection began as a blog last year as a means to expose themselves to new topics and uncover forgotten design ideas.

This printed anthology highlights the favourite aspects of the first 100 books in the collection.

The collection consists of books acquired almost exclusively from dollar bins, libraries, garage sales and other unassuming sites. These sources of low repute imply a devaluation of these books and their contents to the level of detritus.

Many of the books were typical for their time. They may have held little authority - philosophical, artistic, or otherwise - at the time of publishing but when considered against a modern context take on new life, offering notions of psyches foreign to our own. Each book, through the circumstances of its conception, inadvertently captured cultural and visual norms. The collection, as an aggregation of mindsets of both author and subject, becomes a lens through which to explore patterns of wisdom and idiosyncrasy in human endeavour.
