For the love of the Book

Recently I have been running across some wonderful quotes about the importance of books, so I thought I would share…

“There is nothing more beautiful than the book. Please don’t abandon the book.”

~Pattie Smith after receiving the National Book Award

“Someone said to me, these libraries aren’t important anymore, because you can get it all online,” he said, gazing at the floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. “But you can’t. If you Google an artist and Google the images, you get no information — you don’t get where the painting is, you don’t get the medium, you don’t get thesizes, you don’t get the provenance. So these libraries are really important.”

~ Steve Martin in an article by the New York Times about his upcoming book about the gallery world

He also said this about buying & owning art

“It’s absolutely great to live with,” Mr. Martin said. “It’s better than television. There’s not a day I don’t look at or spend some amount of time with an artwork.”

…. love him
