Last week, I stopped in a little bookstore in Shoreditch called Artwords Bookshop and though it was small, I could have stayed there for
years days hours. As many of you know, there is nothing that brings me more joy than a good bookstore and the well-curated selection of art, design, and fashion books (amongst other topics) at Artwords, not to mention their massive selection of not-so-mainstream magazines, made me want to turn cartwheels of joy. Instead, I browsed.
The book is comprised of questions from journalists and inquisitive fans to the infamously private art collector and ad man, Charles Saatchi. His answers are intriguing and wildly entertaining and through them it’s all too clear that Saatchi is an eccentric and intelligent man with a sharp wit and vast interests, regardless of what he says otherwise. The book is light, fun, insightful, and pretty to look at; I really love it, and I think a lot of you will, too.
What are you reading these days, dear reader? I’d like to get lost in a novel soon. Something really good, thought provoking and truthful. Any recommendations?
