Last Friday was another fine Seattle Friends of the Library book sale at Magnuson Park.
Jenni and I and two other friends spent an hour and a half or so, and found some choice items, then had delicious ice cream at Molly Moon: they had "salt licorice" which was terrific.
Here's what I got:
- Pedagogical Sketchbook by Paul Klee
- Directions in Kinetic Sculpture, by Peter Selz
- Foucalt for Beginners, by Lydia Alix Fillingham
- The Starving Artist's Way, by Nava Lubelski
- Passages in Modern Sculpture, by Rosalind E. Krauss
- Fun with Pens, by Christopher Jarman
- Photographics: Line and Contrast Methods, by Par Lundqvist
- ...I never saw another butterfly...: Children's Drawings and Poems from Terezin Concentration Camp 1942-1944
- How to Draw Trees, by Gregory Brown
- Self-Exposures: A Workbook in Photographic Self-Portraiture, by Naomi Weissman and Debra Heimerdinger
- Blackstock's Collections, by Gregoriy L. Blackstock
- Practical Portrait Photography for Home and Studio, by Edwin A. Falk and Charles Abel
A thin paperback filled with thoughts of various graphical natures.
A short illustrated volume of a number of kinetic sculpture artists active in the mid 1960s.
I'm finding these "X for Beginners" books to be excellent bathroom reading, and I don't know much about Mr. Foucalt.
A collection of things to be made on the cheap. I like the cut of its jib.
A nice, densely-illustrated book on the subject.
A silly little book about calligraphy.
A technical book on photographic methods to achieve certain kinds of visual effects. Perhaps ideas for digital filters?
A very very sad book.
An adorable little book from 1943 on methods of drawing trees.
An interesting set of self-portrait related exercises.
Delightful artwork by Mr. Blackstock.
A very old-fashioned book on portaiture, with amusing chapter titles like "Women Over Thirty" and "Budding Manhood".
A good haul again.
