The Collage Ideas BookThe Collage Ideas Book by Alannah Moore. Very good look at many different ways to do collage using examples from collage artists. This is definitely an inspiration book rather than a how-to.
Discovering Gluebooks: How to Stop Focusing on Products & Start Making More ArtDiscovering Gluebooks: How to Stop Focusing on Products and Start Making More Art by Lisa Vollrath. Good overview, examples, and gluebook how-tos. (You make a gluebook by collaging things you already have, such as junk mail, magazines, glue sticks, etc. No special products or expertise required.)

Reading Update
The Perks of Being a WallflowerThe Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Very good epistolary ya novel about Charlie, a high school freshmen who shares his life and thoughts with an unidentified person via one-sided correspondence throughout Charlie’s first year of high school. Powerful.

This is going to be an unorganized whirlwind linkity because I volunteered at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts Thursday (today as I’m writing this) and am quite tired now.

Reading Update
A Wrinkle in Time (Time Quintet, #1)A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. For me, this didn’t age well. And Meg drove me absolutely crazy. D’oh.

Reading Update
Learning by Heart: Teachings To Free The Creative SpiritLearning by Heart: Teachings to Free the Creative Spirit by Corita Kent & Jan Steward. One of the best books about creativity I’ve ever read, despite it looking as if it was produced on a photocopier in the 1980s.
Magic for LiarsMagic for Liars by Sarah Gailey. I’m still not sure how I feel about this one. The POV character is an unreliable narrator who admits she’s a liar right off the bat. She’s also a PI who’s hired to solve a suspicious death at a California boarding school for mages, where her estranged sister teaches. It definitely sucked me in, because I read it in one evening. But right now when I think about the book, it’s like there’s a very small pebble in my shoe – a small but persistent irritation.

Living Color: Painting, Writing, and the Bones of SeeingLiving Color: Painting, Writing, and the Bones of Seeing by Natalie Goldberg. What it says on the tin. This took me a while to get into, but I ended up quite liking it.

American GodsAmerican Gods Tenth Anniversary Edition by Neil Gaiman. I wonder how many times I’ll have to read this to completely grok what’s going on? Maybe that’s not even possible. ANYWAY. There’s a short story about Shadow in Fragile Things, too.
