There’s something about beautiful books that make my heart sing. I understand that with all the ways we read it isn’t practical to make every book an artistic treasure but I would also be perfectly content with the experience if even the most ratty used book was rendered in aesthetic beauty.
Lately I have been reading a lot of how-tos, art books and books with stunning visuals. This list is not at all exhaustive but here are four recent books I’ve been reading that I’m putting under the loose category of Arts. Three are instructional as well as being aesthetically delightful and one is just a thing of absolute beauty.
