...that makes me want to snuggle down with a good book?
Is it the calm serenity of the snowy garden and gently falling snow?
Because my studio is currently the most uninviting, coldest room in the house? (note to self - fix the storm windows in the studio)
Or is it my furry reading companion?
Whatever the reason I have devoured the following in the last week
- Vision and Art: The Biology of Seeing Margaret Livingstone
Sort of work related, as it does have "ART" in the title, but in the opening paragraph there is a jolly quote from 19th century physicist Thomas Young:
"The nature of light is a subject of no importance to the concerns of life or to the practice of the arts, but it is in many other aspects extremely interesting"
and he was quite right, extremely interesting indeed, and with lots of juicy art illustrations too.
- The Lady and the Unicorn by Tracy Chevalier
vaguely work related, as it is about artists and making medieval tapestries...somewhat
- Provenance: How a Con Man and a Forger Rewrote the History of Modern Art by Laney Salisbury & Aly Sujo
Just started this one, so pray for more snow and I'll let you know how it ends by Friday.
