A books of books April 16, 2007

Filed under: Books about Books — Kim @ 7:44 pm

This book on books seems quite promising, I have to say. I have carefully put it on my ‘most wanted list’. This book by Abelardo Morell celebrates everything about the book. From pretty covers to beautiful pages. He does it all with photographs.

According to the readers’ reviews on Amazon, the pictures are pure poetry. I love photography (passive and active), so this book seems to have my name on it. Click here to read the reviews, learn more about the book and look inside it!

    It is a beautiful book – I bought myself a copy after seeing Mr. Morell’s Camera Obscura exhibit in Chicago. I highly recommend visiting his website at http://www.abelardomorell.net/

    There are lovely photos from his “Books of Books” and other work.

    I concur – I bought it last year, and it has a great place of honour in my library. The photos are gorgeous. Biblio-porn at its best.

    Now I have put it on my ‘most wanted’list for sure. I am a sucker for bilio-porn. (Thanks to Patricia for that wonderfull phrase!)

    I might even order this one before Libraries by Candida Hofer…

    I received it for Christmas; the text, not so grand. The photos? Total biblio-porn.
