1. Arise Magazine always has a striking cover, beautiful images and informative content; but their latest issue (number 11) is packed full with really great articles and features. Definitely pick it up to check out Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, and Wangechi Mutu.
2. An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin - I am currently reading this novel about a young woman's climb in the New York art scene. It's a good read for those who love art and art history with a splash of sexiness and drama.
4. I Love Your Style by Amanda Brooks - A fun book filled with images and style ideas.
5. American Trademarks - Logos are my favorite elements to design, and I love seeing this collection of them in this book. After seeing American Trademarks at the bookstore I immediately ordered it online for my design library.
