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.
