My copy of Techniques of the Selling Writer by Dwight Swain got destroyed last August when I was stuck outside (broken car door lock) in a rainstorm. Today I replaced it.
I have purchased eight books this month, and received one ER book. And it's only the 12th.
Last week, I went to a sale and bought:
Picturing Wright : an album from Frank Lloyd Wright's photographer, by Pedro E. Guerrero
Building Taliesin : Frank Lloyd Wright's home of love and loss, by Ron McCrea
Frank Lloyd Wright's Coonley House : story of a masterpiece, by Dean Eastman
Then I went on a tour and bought:
The Richard H. Driehaus Museum (Booklet)
Today I made the mistake of wandering into the Art Institute of Chicago's Museum Shop, and emerged with:
Matchibako : Japanese matchbox art of the 20s and 30s, by Maggie Kinser Hohle
What may come : the Taller de Gráfica Popular and the Mexican political print, by Diane Miliotes
Furoshiki : the art of Japanese wrapping fabric, by Kanako Hamasaki
In praise of shadows, by William Kentridge
The ER book is American luthier : Carleen Hutchins, the art and science of the violin, by Quincy Whitney
All his books I've seen until now have been contemporary stories with a mystery tied to the historical past. The only one I've read so far is In Pale Battalions, but I enjoyed it enough that it was my staff rec a few years back.
And one more ARC, being published in June: Barkskins by Annie Proulx (without the E.), which covers 300 years of deforestation.
