What's on your book shelf?
Whenever I am visiting a house or studio I usually find myself at some point in front of the guest's bookshelf having book envy. This week one of my friends, who has been an avid book collector for the past 30 years, just realized how much some of her art books are worth!! Another friend and I shared some of our favorite books with each other.
I have books all over my house and studio and some on loan but here are a few shots of my neat piles in my office.
I did this early on in my blog as a list but this time how about a photo or two of your book shelves?

I have that same book "Boring Postcards" i have no idea why but it is pretty cool.
I think mine was gift because I collect vintage postcards.
i have the boring postcards book too!!!
Don't have that book but I have been collecting vintage postcards for years. I see I'm in good company.
I have a rotating collection--spread between home and studio. And in the studio, there is always a stack on one of my work tables, books I leaf through when I'm taking a break, or when I'm stuck.
Here is a recent post from my blog on the subject:
It speaks to one's relationship to collecting and collections.
I don't have that one either but I have a couple of good bookshelves in the studio...as well as keeping them stacked around all over the house.
