Libros recomendados de we make money not art

Régine Debatty hace un repaso, en su imprescindible blog we make money not art, a libros que le han llamado la atención en 2014. Es una de esas listas anuales que me gustan porque siempre encuentro algo interesante.

Este año, me ha llamado la atención Maker Dad. Lunch Box Guitars, Antigravity Jars, and 22 Other Incredibly Cool Father-Daughter DIY Projects, de Mark Frauenfelder, sobre todo por eso de padre-hija (aunque por otra parte, me pregunto si hay un libro igual madre-hijo) del que dice:

My dad taught me how to build electronic circuits. Obviously, no dad could every be as wonderful as mine was but they can have a try by following Frauenfelder’s super clear instructions and build all kinds of drawbots, crazy jewellery, retro arcade video game and kite video camera with their kids.

Y luego: Typewriter Art: A Modern Anthology, de Barrie Tullett, que es exactamente lo que dice el título.


Citando al editor:

This beautiful book brings together some of the best examples by typewriter artists around the world. As well as key historical work from the Bauhaus, H. N. Werkman and the concrete poets, there is art by contemporary practitioners, both typewriter artists who use the keyboard as a ‘palette’ to create artworks, and artists/typographers using the form as a compositional device. The book will appeal to graphic designers, typographers, artists and illustrators, and anyone fascinated by predigital technology.

Al final, enlaza también los libros que ha reseñado. De entre ellos, el imprescindible si te interesa un poco el arte es Ways of Looking: How to Experience Contemporary Art, de Ossian Ward.
