I love good books about art, creativity, and anything else that gets the fire going. One of my favorite bookstores in San Francisco, Stacey's Books, is having a hard time competing with the big chains and websites. You can help keep independent bookstores alive by ordering one of these from their site. Below are some books that I think you'll really like. But don't take my word for it!
- The Animator's Survival Kit: A Manual of Methods, Principles and Formulas for Classical, Computer, Games, Stop Motion and Internet Animators(Applied Arts)(Paperback)
by Williams, Richard - Get it here!
- True Norwegian Black Metal: We Turn in the Night Consumed by Fire(Hardcover)
by Kugelberg, Johan - Get it here!
- Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia, Volume I, II, and III(Hardcover)
by Baldaev, Danzig - Get it here!
- Stacked Decks: The Art and History of Erotic Playing Cards(Hardcover) - Get it here!
Okay, so the website is a little slow. Maybe put on some downtempo, make some tea. Lean into it. It's all for a good cause. Better still, maybe make a trip to downtown San Francisco (map) and stop into Stacey's Books in person. They have a great magazine selection.
