What's on your book shelf?

What is on your bookshelf?
Look at the books and then check at their websites.

These are some of the books in my library. I also put art on the shelves. You can identify a Nancy Natale. There's also a Rose Olson (she's a Boston-based painter who does extraordinary things with veils of color) and a drawing on canvas by my niece Toria when she was about nine years old depicting a palette and easel, which she titled on the painting, "The Artist's Touch." She's an adult now but I love that little painting. There's also a small oil-on-panel view, postcard size, of I Faraglioni, the rocks of off Capri., which I bought on my first trip to the island some 35 years ago. There's also a table in my living room groaning with more recent books, including: Women Gallerists in the 20th and 21st Centuries; Bridget Riley; Line, the catalog of the MoMA show last year; and My Name is Charles Saatchi and I am an Artoholic. That latter  I understand very well, as I am a bookoholic.

So in my computer room/library are lots of books - a shot of more recently acquired books and some "oldies but goodies" from Japan (we went there in 2004) - the best book about process: Zen In the Art of Archery" by Eugene Herrigel, 1960s, and a book about proportion in the Japanese house and book once borrowed by Richard Serra,"Forms in Japan," about language for forms.
