books i love: pieces of a pattern
i love sketchbooks because they give me a peek into the workings of the artist's mind--the work itself holds a secret to decipher and the sketchbook just tells you the secret without anything else getting in the way. pieces of a pattern-lacroix by lacroix is an older book (1997) that i found in great condition in a used book store. even though it's paperback, it's a heavy book with glossy pages filled with inspiration and images of lacroix's actual sketchbooks.
