Authors on Art

Here is a thing that I think will be neat. Blake Butler is putting together a series of monthly columns called "Authors on Art" for the Atlanta-based art blog Burnaway. The first in the series features Ben Spivey, author of Flowing in the Gossamer Fold, writing about the photography of Yelena Yemchuk and how it influenced his book, both of which sound/look pretty great. Some of the photos are up on the blog, but here's some others on her site. I know next to nothing about art. But I like hers, and it seems like she does a really wide range.

Meanwhile, Ben Spivey's book involves a character who's a mannequin, and it just generally sounds cool. More here from Blue Square Press.

"Authors on Art" will be featured on Burnaway the second Monday of each month.
