Reading art : art for book lovers
Trigg, David2018
Books
A celebration of artworks featuring books and readers from throughout history, for the delight of art lovers and bibliophiles. As every book tells a story, every book in art is part of an intriguing, engaging, and relatable image. Books are depicted as indicators of intellect in portraits, as symbols of piety in religious paintings, as subjects in still lifes, and as the raw material for contemporary installations. "Reading Art" spotlights artworks from museums and collections around the globe, creating a gorgeous, inspiring homage to both the written word and to its pivotal role in the visual world.
