I enjoy reading since very young age. However, I could not afford to buy many books, so I had to borrow them from others. Then, in high school, my friends and I spent most of our free time to categorize books in the library. That’s how we became close to the school librarian and read as many book as we wanted. Since we can access to information easily via Internet, books become less common. However, I am still fascinated with paper book and aspire to preserve this reading culture. I am now partnering with Gestalten to share my favourite book selection specialized in art, culture, design, architecture, nature, and beauty. By clicking on my book’s selection below, you will be redirected to Gestalten‘s official website and can purchase directly with them. My selection will be updated regularly. Stay inspired ! 😉
Art & Culture
This book illuminates all aspects of becoming an expert at buying art that one will enjoy for many years, such as how to get started, how to take one’s tastes seriously, how to do a targeted search for pieces, how to learn to appraise prices, and how to find trustworthy partners. Kagge’s practical yet entertaining step-by-step guidance also includes ways to identify and avoid pitfalls and deceptive temptations. As an extreme athlete, he knows very well how to follow rules yet trust his instinct where it counts.
From election results to catastrophes to wars to scientific discoveries: the stream of data we are exposed to daily becomes ever more complicated. Infographics help make sense of it, transforming difficult to grasp facts and figures into accessible visualizations. Print media are increasingly making successful use of them. Visual Journalism reveals the masters of this discipline and their finest works.
