Looking At Books
If you saw the December 2006 issue of World of Interiors, you know Andy Spade is a serious art collector. He is also drawn to books, especially those with graphic, intriguing covers, and he recently organized an exhibition titled "An Argument for Looking at Books Instead of Reading Them," installed at Colette in Paris, December 2006. The installation included a wide array of book jackets -- some taken from vintage art exhibition catalogs and others from rare editions. Images from the exhibition can be seen on the Kate Spade site in "Behind the Curtain."
A grouping of very vivid framed book jackets could be an interesting focal point in a home too.
