Synopsis

Delighting in the look and feel of books, conceptual artist Nina Katchadourian's playful photographic series proves that books' covers-or more specifically, their spines-can speak volumes. Over the past two decades, Katchadourian has perused libraries across the globe, selecting, stacking, and photographing groupings of two, three, four, or five books so that their titles can be read as sentences, creating whimsical narratives from the text found there. Thought-provoking, clever, and at times laugh-out-loud funny (one cluster of titles from the Akron Museum of Art's research library consists of: Primitive Art/Just Imagine/Picasso/Raised by Wolves ), Sorted Books is an enthralling collection of visual poems full of wry wit and bookish smarts.
