Ways of Seeing
(Paperback)
John Berger
 
Maybe the strangest thing about this book is remembering that it accompanied a BBC TV series in 1972. They don’t make ‘em like this anymore…. I’m fond of it because my father always kept it with him, wherever he lived, in flats or old people’s homes, long after he’d been divorced and had only about five books to his name. I think it represented to him a time when there was a stronger desire, in the culture, to bring complicated ideas to the masses. Anyway it’s a moving and polemical essay about property and art, seeing and owning.

The Painted Word
(Paperback)
Tom Wolfe
 
I read this when I was a student and it gave me permission to not take the art too seriously. Because of this book I don’t stand around in front of artworks waiting for it to happen.

Joseph Cornell: Shadowplay, Eterniday
(Hardback)
Lynda Roscoe Hartigan; Walter Hopps;...
 
The finest monograph on any artist I've yet read, it provides a thorough overview of the work and the man who kept poetry and the beauty of the ineffable alive in the visual arts during its blunter and decidedly more "effable" periods. Including a DVD of his experimental films, a facsimile digital collection of his record and book collections, and three-dimensional digital models of his better known boxes, this book is a fittingly great assessment of the man who I think was the greatest and most original artist of the 20th century.

Bill Drummond
 
Series of slightly unhinged essays spotlighting The KLF founder’s brilliantly skewed attitudes to music and art and life. Laugh-out-loud hilarious.

The Camera
(Paperback)
Ansel Adams
 
These three Ansel Adams books acted as my personal tutor during my degree course in Graphic Design at Camberwell College of Arts. I learned more about the fundamentals of photography from this Ansel Adams literary canon than from any other single person, before or since. Although the game has changed since then, in terms of the seismic shift away from negative-based photography towards the digital age, I think that most or all of the theories in these books still hold as much power and relevance as ever they did, for anyone wishing to learn about the craft of photography.

Seven Days in the Art World
(Paperback)
Sarah Thornton
 
Thornton takes us into seven scenes, the studio, the auction, the magazine, the art school etc and archly dissects the action from her ethnographers point of view. A really good primer if you are about to enter the business in whatever role.

A Writer's Diary
(Paperback)
Virginia Woolf; Lyndall Gordon
 
I value Woolf’s diaries as much for their pathos as for the insight they give into her modernist technique. Woolf’s life was as full of epiphanies as it was of sadness, and each page reads like an intimate note from a sensitive friend.

Birds and Light: The Art of Lars Jonsson
(Hardback)
Lars Jonsson
His illustrations of birds in field guides have always had an unrivalled sense of animation, movement and characteristic jizz. This volume is a selection of his field sketches and watercolours which display his mastery in conveying fleeting impressions of moving subjects in changing light and weather conditions: instants of perception. There are also very intelligent diary notes and commentary.
