Welcome to the fourth edition of The Pulse -- The State of the Art -- a survey in words and pictures of the online artist community. Nearly 150 artists have answered a list of questions which make up The Pulse. Their responses will be presented as a series of online and print projects. Secret Sunday was the first project and the links to all the secrets can be found on the sidebar of my blog. The Book Guild is the second project and Chapter 15 starts right now!
All artists participating in The Pulse were asked to name their favorite art books. The Book Guild will present this list, along with links, book reviews, giveaways, and interviews with many of your favorite authors. And as members of The Guild, I am hoping YOU will participate by leaving comments related to the books in each post - for example thoughts, book reviews, personal experiences, or a link back to your own blog posts that include artwork based on a project in the listed book.
Chapter 15: Off the Beaten Path
Alicia Caudle chose Mysterium Fidei as one of her favorites.
Stephanie Brouwers selected The History of Beads by Lois Sherr Dubin, noting that "it’s a must have if you are into beads."
Hi-fructose Collected Edition by Annie Owens was picked by Patricia Anders as her favorite.
Lisa Renner selected Dustcovers: The Collected Sandman Covers by Dave McKean as one of her favorites.
Linda Moran said "I have so many art books, I’m not sure I could point to one particular one. What do I go back to? Anything by Joen Wolfrom, who takes design principles and applies them to quilts."
Jane Royal chose Painting People in Watercolor by Alex Powers as her favorite. Jane adds "His work is solid, yet imperfect: a bit scratchy and un-finished. I find his is portraits to be very compelling and emotional."
