Deirdre Donohue’s Photobookcases
"The first couple of vertical rows are essays and theory and criticism, the next two are works on art movements and collections, then there are monographs generally by artist’s last name, but not exact because the shelves are varying heights, so they dance around alpha order a bit. After that, are books on photo books… Continue reading Deirdre Donohue’s Photobookcases
