Remarkable Bookshelf 2

Cally Trench's artist's booksCally Trench's homepage

Cally Trench asked the Remarkable and Curious Conversations artists in June 2011 once again what they were reading, and she made a second zigzag book from photographs of the book spines. The complete reading list is given below.

Only one book is still on the bookshelf from last year: Philip Auslander - Liveness: performance in a mediatized culture.

Several books appear twice: AS Byatt - The Children's Book; Amy Delarue - Land Girls; Cynthia Freeland - Art Theory: A very short introduction; and Sarah Thornton - Seven Days in the Art World. Proust's first volume turns up twice (in English and in French) as Marcel Proust - The Way by Swann's and as Marcel Proust - Du Cote de Chez Swann.
