I seem to be collecting books lately. I really don't know why. All of them, I have been drawn to and had to buy. Some, I haven't yet opened since they arrived in my home. Others, are partially read and some, I'm not really sure why I bought them in the first place, other than I just liked them. Do you collect books? I find great inspiration in books. I'm a slow reader. I am one of those people who has to read every word. Therefore it takes me a while to read a book. I also like to read a book in its entirety. However, these books I am finding that a read some, take what I need and then let it sit for a while. I may or may not come back to it. But aren't they pretty?
The second is And the Story is Happening. I actually have no intention of using these books as they were intended. Both are designed to be used for journaling. I just love looking at them. For some reason I'm drawn to that way she paints her background work for these journaling pages.
Twyla - well, we all should read this book. Its been on my list for quite a while and I found it in a local bookstore. I'm halfway through it. All good stuff and I love the design work of the inside of this book. If I ever write a book, I will use this design as inspiration.
This one I haven't read yet. But, how could I pass up a title like this. The contributers to this book are all amazing women. The photography is brilliant. I'm super excited to dive into this one.
I like Danny Gregory. His story is inspiring and his drawings are fun. He has a lot of good stuff to say in this book and good lessons on drawing.
Finally, if you know Susannah... well, you just have to have this book. Susannah teaches the amazing Unravelling courses. She is a brillant Polaroid photographer and writer. I've just read little bits so far and already I love it.
So, what books are on your nightstand?
