From the Bookshelf
This is a delightful compendium of artists' journals and sketchbooks compiled by the inspirational Danny Gregory. Over 50 artists are represented. Each one does an introduction to themselves and their work, followed by several pages of their drawings, illustrations, doodles, journals and notebooks. Gregory who is best known for his ground-breaking book Everyday Matters states that "artist's sketchbooks represent a nonthreatening place to record risks, mistakes, regrets, thoughts, lessons, and dreams." A load of eye candy and inspiration.
