My Libraries: Artbooks
These swaybacked shelves are groaning under the weight of the art books I have not discarded. There are reference books on the top right, images of animals, clouds and so on. Art theory on the top left; Middle right is art techniques. On the lower shelf are monographs, that is, picture books of various individual artists, books about art "movements", and some survey books about art through the centuries, focusing primarily on the Western European and American tradition.
