I talked about it before, I’ve been wanting to make a Blurb book for a while now! Then I had the idea of making a handmade items/shops book, featuring artists from Etsy, which would be a place I could also go nuts on the design part of it! Turns out, after a little research, it already exists! Oh well… My goal is not really to go against a similar idea, so I guess I’ll have to find something else!
Talking about books, I’ve been quite book-interested lately!
First, a self-published fiction novel written by Katherine Lawrence (a Montrealer) called Falling. I purchased it yesterday and should be getting it in the mailbox in the next few days, if not tomorrow! Seems very intense (the book deals with the complete destruction an introverted photographer named Severen experiences when he’s left by his drug-addicted girlfriend. You can read the first chapter here.), and I can’t wait to start reading it soon when I’ll have a few minutes!
Then, a photographic and conceptual book named Lines and Shapes. This is volume one of what will apparently be a series and features conceptual photography and objects seen by various artists (Jennifer Causey, Lena Corwin, Karen Gelardi, Caitlin Mociun, Christopher Ryan, Maria Vettese). Seems like a perfect “I’m taking a break” book just to just relax a bit! At only $21 + affordable shipping, what a bargain!
Last but not least, the photobook D is for detail by Alison Brockbanks (aka Six and a half Stitches) seems very tempting right now! I adore macro photography, and Alison rocks at seeing the world through textures and shapes! So that’s on my list as well!
Happy reading/looking! :)
