I read every word of coffee table books. When I go to an exhibit I head straight for the gift shop and plonk down my $50 or $80 or $100 for the glossy show book. For some reason, museums and art exhibits make me very hungry. I have a hard time concentrating and start thinking about snacks. That's why I only spent 45 minutes in the Louvre; I barely remember the Mona Lisa but I remember every bite of the cheese sandwich from the street vendor outside. Some artist, huh?
Anyway, the book comes home with me and I take my time reading about the artist and the works. It's one of my greatest joys in life.
For lovers of coffee table books, the Charleston Box book is now available. It's 10" x 8" hardcover with a glossy dust jacket and lots of good photos. There are 46 pages featuring my favorite works in the series, the story behind the body of work, and lots of detail and studio shots. Hardcovers are $45 and eBooks are $10.
