Thoughts On Dreams, A Book That Uses Actual Threads As Hyperlinks



Maria Fischer, a designer from Germany, created a book named named “Traumgedanken” (“Thoughts on dreams”) that contains theories, ideas and insight into the world of dreaming.

With the use of thread sewn throughout the book, she connects words and underlines keywords (hyperlinks) to guide the reader through the beautiful chaos.

To ease the access to the elusive topic, the book is designed as a model of a dream about dreaming. Analogue to a dream, where pieces of reality are assembled to build a story, it brings different text excerpts together. They are connected by threads which tie in with certain key words. The threads visualise the confusion and fragileness of dreams.
