Shedding light on dusty pages.

I saw a post on Artstation a couple of weeks ago by an Environment Artist called Devon Fay. It was about how he had built up a collection of art books over the years but had only opened and flicked through them a few times. They are now just sat on his shelf gathering dust. I’m in a similar position myself with my art book collection. I don’t even have enough space for them all in my own home…

In an attempt to breathe new life into them Devon is doing a weekly blog about each of his and he has inspired me to do something similar. Unfortunately I can’t read and write about one every week but I am going to aim to do at least one a month (to begin with). As you can see from the pictures some of them are a lot thicker than others so I’ll need a little extra time to peruse them. Some of these books are a little tricky to get hold of so I want to do each book justice. Expect lots of pictures, maybe not so much writing!

If there is a particular book you want me to do first (or ones for subsequent posts) then get in touch! I’m thinking about writing my first book post on one that takes us on a Journey.
