it was amazing
bookshelves: my-best-and-favorites, art
Recommended for: Art lovers, word lovers, and anyone in need of inspiration
Read from June 03 to 04, 2012

For anyone who loves words and creativity, this is a must-read! Well, actually, the text of the book itself is irritating to try to read but the photos of so many different and wonderful types--with many in their context, be it advertisements or something else--are enough to make one cry tears of joy. My favorite artists were Linzie Hunter, Marcus Walters, Ohiogirl, Si Scott, Studio Oscar, Gray 318, Vasava, and Jenny Grigg. My top two were Sarah King (check out her website!) and the ice cube letters of Kotama Bouabane. Moral of this story: amazing things are created when the creative spirit is let out of its box.
