This list is by no means all inclusive and it is certainly debatable but these are some books that have helped me out over the years. All of the books are linked to Amazon where you can find reviews and descriptions.
Also, since I value reading as an artist (and, of course, think that every artist should read–a lot) I gave this list a page of its own. The link to the page is to the left. This list will probably grow and change from time to time.
- Art & Fear: Observations On the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking
- A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future
- How to Survive and Prosper as an Artist: Selling Yourself Without Selling Your Soul
- Art and Illusion
- Art in Theory 1900 – 2000: An Anthology of Changing Ideas
