Today was a great book day! My (ex-library) copy of Private Pages: Diaries of American Women 1830s-1970s arrived in the mail (thanks, Laura, for the recommendation!)
I also was happily surprised to see that one of my local bookshops already had out their copies of The Sketchbook Project: World Tour. I flipped through it several times and knew that it had to go home with me. I've looked at it several times since I bought it. It's really neat that it's organized by continent. My only complaint is that there isn't an index. If you're interested in the book, definitely check out their website as you may want to join in on the fun. I'd definitely buy a second volume of this.
There are two new Frida Kahlo books:
I don't have the above yet (it's in the mail) but I'm eager to get my grubby paws on it. I wish that I could get to Detroit to see the show in person (especially to see Diego's Frescoes! I know that no book will ever do them true justice.) You may be interested in a recent article about the exhibit here.
Two books that I didn't buy today but added to my wishlist are:
Eventually Everything Connects is a very, very cool book that mentions two of my favorite artists, Mary Blair AND Corita Kent. It explores creative connections. It's definitely not for everyone but I absolutely loved it. David and I were having fun folding the book out and enjoying it in the store.
Artists Homes and Studios is exactly what the title says. Each artist has two pages in the book. I flipped through it several times and knew that I had to add it to the wishlist. I found this blog that has quite a few tiny sample pages from it.
