Unpacking My Library: Artists and Their Books

£16.99  

A captivating tour of the bookshelves of ten leading artists, exploring the intricate connections between reading, artistic practice, and identity taking its inspiration from Walter Benjamin's seminal 1931 essay, the Unpacking My Library series charts a spirited exploration of the reading and book collecting practices of today's leading thinkers.

This is a book about books, but it even more importantly highlights the role of literature in shaping an artist's self-presentation and persona. Photographs of each artist's bookshelves present an evocative glimpse of personal taste, of well-loved and rare volumes, and of the individual touches that make a bookshelf one's own.
