Artists and Books

November 17, 2009


Every artist I meet is like me: addicted to books!  It seems we all get our inspiration from reading (oh, I mean looking at the pictures…) artist’s books, how-to books, and other resource type books.  It’s funny to find how many books I have in common with other artists, even in other countries.

One of the first things I like to do is see what books someone else has.  I think a bookshelf tells a lot about the people that own it.  I can get a better understanding of what their interests are, what sort of reading they like to do and a little bit about how their mind works, too.  Sometimes it isn’t about the books but it’s about the owner.  Isn’t that interesting?
