Books, books, and more books!


I've got a rather impressive birthday coming up next month. You know, one of the ones with a ZERO at the end? All my loved ones want to know what I want, and the answer is...not much! I'm a pretty content person overall. But I do have a special fondness and weakness for books.

So I'm asking you: what books should I buy? Please don't feel you have to confine yourself to suggesting mixed media art books...I'm really open to suggestions in most art fields. Maybe even open to books that have nothing much to do with art. But only maybe :-)

So far, I'm pretty sure that I'm going to ask for Ann Baldwin's Creative Paint Workshop for Mixed Media Artists, and Jacqueline Sullivan's dvd called Acrylics: Textures, layers and metallics. Anything I should add to my list?

Thank you for sharing sooooo much I now have just condensed my favorites and you are simply at the top!

LOL Lori!!! You just made my day! I'm so glad that you've found this information helpful.

Now, about books...maybe you need to get one on organization...? I'll get you one for *your* birthday :-)

Thanks Judi! I have a few by Sherrill Kahn, but I don't know Ruth Issette's work. I'll look it up! :-)

I could suggest a few favs in swedish, but then again, they may not do much for you LOL

Cyndi L said...

:-) Only if I could find translations of them!

There are so many books that I could recommend...I have a lot of favorites. But one that I go back to often and I really love is called "Living the Creative Life" and it is written by Rice Freeman-Zachery

Thanks Seth! One that I've read that may be somewhat similar was by Twyla Tharp, The Creative Habit.
