Beautiful Art (Books)

A session at Books in Browsers 2011

Friday 28th October, 2011

2:45pm to 3:45pm (PST)

I am the publisher of Hol Art Books and I hate art books. Art books are expensive (not accessible), heavy (not mobile), and no one reads them (not social). Our reverence for them is misplaced. Today, a book shouldn’t be beautiful for the way it’s packaged and sold, it should be beautiful for what it says and for the encounters in creates. Encounters not only with other texts and ideas, but also with people, places and—for my field especially—objects in the real world. I hate art books, but I love art.
