new books

new books

i'm one of those people who saves for a rainy day. i'm no scrooge, but i'm definitely not frivolous. one thing that can always nudge me into loosening my pursestrings, however, is beautiful artist's books. above are a selection that i've added to my bookshelf recently. if you're looking for some new things to pour over, i'd recommend any one of these.

clockwise from top left:
pebble island by jon mcnaught (£10 from nobrow press) / strom by nigel peake (£12 from nigel's online shop) / onwards by kaye blegvad (purchased from kaye's online shop) / temporama by clayton jr (birthday gift from boyfriend, available from nobrow) / rain day by hannah waldron (£15 from duke press, also came with a beautiful risograph print by hannah) / toska by lizzy stewart (£6.50 from lizzy's online shop)

Thank you for your suggestions - I am also a keen collector of artists books (and zines). I will look at these.

Cool books! I bought Toska myself and I'm anxiously waiting for it to arrive.

glad you all like artist's books as much as me.

I've been almost-lusting after Toska for days, and Rain Day looks amazingly-lust-worthy as well. Of course, they all do, really.

Oh boy, so many lovely books. I can see why anyone would splurge on any or all of them. I want it all, especially Pebble Island.

I always save some money for Rainy Day too, and I guess I should call it "Book Day", cos once I get in a bookstore, I can't go away without a book or several of them.
Unfortunately here, in Russia, there is not a big range of English books.

I really loved your blog, I admired the way your idea will inculcate with our minds. And rainy days are over time now for summer.
