Plus between 50-25,000 reference books on various design, architecture, fashion, mechanical, historical, textile, etc disciplines that fill out a working designer's library. Every production designer with major credits builds their home around the library. Even some without.

Plus all of the texts and manuals associated with whatever various software tools you use.
