There's nothing better than being excited about a new book, holding that book in your hands and seeing how really good it is. So good that you could lick the pages. Almost.
I've sang the praises of all of the Uppercase publications over the years. I adore their Work/Life compilations. When they arrive, I like to slowly savor them (as opposed to devour them.) I love reading the artist's thoughts as well as seeing photos of their artwork, studio bits and inspiration. I will be looking at this for a long time. Make sure that you check out their blog for more bits into the book!
Freehand arrived and I was shocked at how small it is! It's very cute (size wise.) It's full of ideas for drawing, composition and more. So far, I'm just enjoying looking at all of the artwork. Gorgeous. Inspiring.
I started reading Chaplin: My Autobiography last night. I had a hard time putting it down. It's a fascinating read.
What art books are you looking forward to?
