A BOOK I LOVE

A BOOK I LOVE

 

When I worked at the Getty Museum, I became mildly obsessed with the GRI (Getty Research Institute).  It is the ultimate art history library - they have everything!  or they have access to everything!.  I would visit often because it always expanded any idea I had.  Many books were in foreign languages, some books had the most beautiful covers or typography.  It was easy to get lost in there - not to mention the building was beautiful, especially when it had an Andy Goldsworthy sculpture that I still can't believe got washed away due to a plumbing accident.  That experience turbo boosted my already growing personal library, it made me look at visual material of all sorts differently and my collection grew.  I now have binders and binders, all types of magazines and tons of books (I have given so much away, but there is still plenty and as much as I let go of I get more).  I have digitized a solid amount but there are a few that would loose some of its magic if digitized.  This book is one of them. 

Found at a Paris flea market and just beautiful - I love looking at this over and over.  I never tire of its beauty.
