Artistic and Varied -- Not Just for Bookworms,
This review is from: My Ideal Bookshelf (Hardcover)
I'm a bona fide bookworm, and so books about books are always appealing to me. As a bookworm, I'm not sure I got what I expected from this book, because I would have preferred in-depth discussion about specific titles that might have been familiar to me.
However, I'm still giving this 4-stars, because of the whole package. My teen daughter is an artist, and so I've become much more aware of art, and this is a BEAUTIFUL book, so it would be perfect as a coffee table book or library feature. The entry from each person appears on one side of the page, and the other side has a full-page drawing of the books (similar to the one featured on the cover).
There are quite a few authors featured, but there are also several artists -- from all sorts of fields -- chefs and professionals from other careers, so the books that are featured are not for bookworms only.
