    The nitty gritty

    A Center for Ants? May 1 '09 4

    First of all it's official. I'm finally a "candidate" for the masters degree.


    Just an interesting visual survey I've started. It's always interesting to see what people are reading/researching. I've been doing an independent study creating a book of research and projects we've done in the last few quarters. Books are interesting. The other night, Jeff Kipnis noted a certain "forgetability" of magazines in that we see the same things over and over and are always drawn back to them (*ahem* Dwell or any men's health or women's interest magazines). But then books have an aura that's entirely different. Here are a few book collections on a few desks around here.

      I'm way behind in commenting, sorry. You should check out the book "Unpacking My Library: Architects and Their Books" published by Yale. It is full of pictures of renown architect's book shelves. A really interesting read. Your post reminded me of that book.

      Dear UCLA (A Center for Ants?) blogger,

      Can I have your permission to post (online, in conference proceedings) a presentation I gave to the Art Libraries Society of North America in March that included a couple of your images (of books laying around the studios)? Or do I need to remove your images before I post the presentation? (I'm citing the source, of course!).

      Please get in touch at jhenri at library dot ucla dot edu

      Thanks!
