New Art Books

We always get new books, but I thought I'd share a couple of particular treats in book format for the art lover:

Renowned local artist George W. McCullough's book Camping Out is now available at the library. The book is George's personal story told in part by his expressive artwork. It is so fortunate for us that he shared his life story with us in print before he passed away last October. One copy of the book is available for checkout and the other stays in the library in the Art, Music & Audiovisual Services department. I think the copy available to check out is indeed checked out, but you could place a hold on it. Find it listed in our library catalog.

Also of interest for the artist and bibliophile, Reading Women by Stefan Bollmann. The book is a collection of famous artists' renderings of women reading (or swooning from what they've read). Find it at the Main Library.
