It seems like lately it's been total feast with the number of books out this month. Below are a few that I've purchased (gotta love birthday months!) or that I've received as gifts.
If you love washi paper tapes, you should definitely check out the next two books for some clever things to do with the tapes:
Les Parisiennes et l'art de la papetene avec des masking tapes (Ginko Papers has this title in stock!)
Collages avec les adhesifs matins (another title that Ginko papers is carrying!)
Vintage Patterns of Japan (bought at Kinokuniya in Japantown, San Francisco)
Amelia's Anthology of Illustration-
Illustrated Three-Line Novels
Tristan Manco's Street Sketchbook
Lynda Barry's Picture This
A Perfectly Kept House...
And the Pursuit of Happiness by Maira Kalman
World of Peter Greenaway
Beyond Reason (I did not pay the price listed on amazon or what I saw in the local used bookstore ($90). I paid about half of that and had a gift certificate to boot. Yay!)
Katherine Dunn's Creative Illustration Workshop
Mark Making by Tilleke Schwarz
Graphic: Inside the sketchbooks of the world's great graphic designers (Barron Storey is in it!)
I have to point out that I love my local Mom and Pops, used bookstores, indie bookstores and 40% off coupons! I also love amazon gift cards (LOL!) I paid full price for two of the books, Lynda Barry (bought at Skylight books during her signing) and Tilleke's book which I ordered directly from her).
Who needs new clothes and a new comforter when one can be surrounded by books? I really hope that there isn't anything else coming out this year that I will "need".
