Reading Art: Art for Book Lovers

Reading Art: Art for Book Lovers


Can you read a painting? Whether a bookcase acts as a symbolic object in the background of a photograph, or a reader is shown sitting by a window, Reading Art acts as a homage to the various ways that artists have interpreted books in their work.

Featuring full-colour prints and an essay on the author's inspiration for the project, David Trigg documents and traces the history of how paintings across the world have depicted books as symbols, subjects, and objects.
