And so on and so on. This cunning little book, with its clear but never condescending text and playful watercolor inspirations, takes you through the many different aspects and decisions of a seemingly simple, everyday undertaking. Amazingly, the book never goes on too long about any single facet of this task, and, in its thoroughness and and thoughtfulness, makes clear that this is a book-length subject, not a magazine article or Google-search topic.
Best of all, by examining every angle of something we all think we know so well, it manages to make the familiar new and, dare I say, even exciting. I can’t wait to hang my next picture or, now that I know what How to Hang a Picture has taught me, to go back and fix some of the half-assed picture-hanging jobs in the house.
My only quibble is that the subtitle promises "other essential lessons for the stylish home," and although there's information on lighting, daylight, and even a bit on bookshelves, I was hoping that the authors would bring their insights, wit, and clear advice to bear on the rest of the home, in addition to the art on the walls. Hopefully in a sequel or two, companion volumes to this winsome book.
