August reading list...

Certainly an eclectic mix.  Tom Wolfe's The Painted Word has been recommended to me; I may read that next.

Last weekend, I went to this fantastic exhibit on view until mid-October at the New Britain Museum of American Art.  I have now become intrigued by the woodblock prints of Blanche Lazzell.  She's not an artist I'm familiar with.  At first glance, I didn't care for these prints and dismissed them as quaint.  Looking at them more thoughtfully, I'm drawn to her candy colored houses and their rakish rooflines. 

Torpedo and Studio, 1920

Roofs, 1919
