Reading List

I don't know what it is about fall, but recently I have been daydreaming about cuddling up with a good book. Of course because of school I read for hours and hours everyday, but I am talking about fun reading. Here's a quick rundown of the best books in my Amazon cart right now.

(left to right, by category)

Billy Collins, Horoscopes for the Dead
Elizabeth Hun Schmidt, Poets Laureate Anthology
Maira Kalman, And the Pursuit of Happiness
Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything (technically not fiction or poetry, but fun like it anyway!)

Christiane Limieux and Rumaan Alam, Undecorate
Grace Bonney, Design*Sponge At Home

Johan Kugelberg, Beauty Is In the Street
Scott Ropthkof, Glenn Ligon: AMERICA
John Elderfield and Jim Coddington, Willem de Kooning: A Retrospective
Douglas Eklund, The Pictures Generation: 1974-1984

Alston Purvis, A Visual History of Typefaces & Graphic Styles, 1901-1938
