The books in my library are more than acquisitions – they are my working companions. My library is filled with poetry and literature, reference books (dictionaries and encyclopedias), and books on lettering and bookbinding. We reread books to find information missed in the first reading. By returning to my books I hope to be re-informed and attain a deeper understanding of what I already practice. Like listening to music over and over again, I revisit books to be re-inspired by familiar stories and illustrations. And sometimes, it is just the familiarity of the size and shape and weight of a particular book in my hand that I am seeking. There is great discovery in re-reading. Here are a few photos of my library.
Reference books on art and mathematics and calligraphy and design.
Thank you for reading this blog. I wish you a new year filled with discovery, Nancy Leavitt
