This is a series of photographs about artistsí relationships with books. Kathryn Falkner asked a selection of artists for their twenty most important books to date, photographing them so that only the spines are legible. The images are printed life size, accompanied by a book containing a bibliography and a statement written by each artist. As social and cultural indicators, these collections affirm the significance of books as objects for pleasure and knowledge, suggesting self-portraits as literary still lifes.
