Book Relish: on our radar

Here are a few of the many books I've been meaning to read. They are allllll on my Amazon wishlist waiting patiently for me although I'm going to try and find a lot of them at the library. I'm especially excited to read Steve Martin's book. I liked his novella Shopgirl a lot mostly because of the slightly flippant/ satirical tone he uses. Everyone describes him as a "renaissance man" with his banjo-playing, art collecting, acting, etc. It'll be interesting to see how he interprets the art world.

Also the Kiki Smith prints book I REALLY want to own. So many good photos of her work including paper works and some of her works on fabric. While we're on the topic of art, Carson Ellis is a great illustrator (I'd describe her visual style as "faded Russian fairy-tale" if that conjures up any images for you) and Beautiful Stories of Life seems promising.

What's on your reading list?

"An Object of Beauty" is more of Steve Martin pining for 20-something ice queens. But it's fun!
