Inexpensive Art Inspiration



For my birthday last year, I treated myself to a pair of these old art auction catalogs that I found at a local antique co-op. I liked them so much I went back and bought two more. The vendor had 4 bookcases filled with them and ever so patiently, I looked through every title searching for the best ones to showcase my favorite contemporary artists.



I spent a whopping $16 for these 4 books - each densely packed with images in both black and white and color covering a wide variety of artists. Each image is cataloged with the artists name, date, materials used and an estimated selling price. With all of the art inspiration found inside? These were a bargain!

What a boon if ever there was one! I wonder if I would be able to find something like that around here. Hmm. And if that vendor has a website, don't be afraid to share. :D
