In this reading list, I share thoughts on scholars and journalists from which the Sublime Imperfections project takes its inspiration. The authors of the texts that I clustered ponder the nexus between the imperfect and the sublime, they rethink repair and breakdown, they critically interrogate and historically contextualize imperfection and ruin fetishism, and they ask why ‘getting it wrong’ is the new right in design. Together, they can help us understand how the contemporary infatuation with imperfection works and what creative professionals across different disciplines seek in the non-polished.
