Books We Are Reading

Are you like us and always curious what other creatives are reading? We thought it would be fun to show you what is on our desks or nightstands. Please feel free to share in the comments what you are reading!

Denise :: I am currently reading In The Company Of Women by Grace Bonney and love it! There is nothing more exciting to me than reading interviews of creative people (especially women creatives) and getting to peek into their spaces. I was excited to see Sarah Neuburger of The Small Object, Dana Tanamachi, Carson Ellis, Ping Zhu, and Kathleen Hanna among the 100 women. The book is filled with beautiful photographs, wonderful advice and plenty of inspiration. I was planning on reading a few interviews a day, but ended up devouring the entire book in one sitting. 

Emily :: Admittedly, I am not much of a reader. I'd LIKE to read more, but alas, I don't have enough down time. Recently, though, a creative friend of mine sent me a list of his favorite graphic novels and I picked up a few from the library. I am almost finished with Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi, a memoir of a girl growing up in revolutionary Iran. I didn't know anything about this period of history, and I am finding it fascinating. I love the perspective of a young girl telling her story, and of course I am really attracted to the stark black and whiteness of the art. I would highly recommend it!
