#FridayReads – 10 Influential & Inspiring Books from Art’s Library

Welcome back to Art’s Bookshelf! Last night on Tequila Time with Art, I discussed some of the books that have influenced and inspired me over the years. It’s a list of 10, but they are in no particular order. I find that as an artist, it’s difficult to choose “favorites” – any shred of inspiration you can find is simply invaluable and incomparable. Do yourself a favor and buy yourself something nice, whether it’s one of MY books, or these fantastic volumes by other authors. Looking at images online is amazing and convenient, but there is something about picking up a heavy book and immersing yourself in it’s pages with no distractions.

Without further ado – 10 influential books from my bookshelf! For the details, I discuss them all on Tequila Time Episode 5!

1.) Man As Art by Malcolm Kirk

2.) Gold  by Sebastian

3.) Everest: The West Ridge by Thomas F. Hornbein

4.) The Creation by Ernst Haas

5.) African Ceremonies by Angela Fisher and Carol Beckwith

6.) Manufactured Landscapes by Edward Burtynsky

7.) Irving Penn by Irving Penn

8.) Inside Life by Greg Gorman

9.) Across the Empty Quarter by Wilfred Thesiger

10.) Explorations by the Royal Geographic Society

Enjoy the list and hopefully the episode of Tequila Time. If you’re not joining me at 5:30 on thursdays for our live chat, you’re missing out!

    This is really great. I’m looking forward to seeing Arts favorites of his own books next Thursday.

    It’s so special to spend this time learning and just absorbing everything that is “Art Wolfe”. I’ve been battling breast cancer since November so not only has quarantine been tough, but the cancer treatments have been the most challenging experience I have endured in my 50 years! Spending time with Art has created a bright spot during a dark time. Thank you so much!
