Art books + artist authors: we got yr end-of-winter reading material!

This has been an eerily mild winter (sorry, Planet Earth) but we’re still starting to get cabin fever, right on cue. The cure? Cozying up with a beautiful book or twelve. Some good reading/viewing material will getcha through these last few weeks of wind chill. Lucky for you, a whole bunch of 20x200 artists recently authored, illustrated or are featured in some terrific tomes. Take a look at a few of those books below. And don’t forget to support your local bookstore!
