I collect (hoard?) many things, but if I had to declare only one collection as my favorite, it would be my books.
The following list is an up-to-date listing of my books that fall into the categories of Outsider Art, Folk Art, Self-Taught Art, Art Brut, etc. It’s a public record of things that I’m looking at and find interesting, but it’s also a handy listing for myself – this way I always have access to the list of my books, so I’ll be less likely to accidentally buy duplicate copies (this happens more than you might imagine).
Last updated: January 21st, 2024 Current № of books in the collection: 46
Update (Jan 24): You can now click on the entries to view more information about the books. There’s more formatting and styling to do here (and the sorting feature is currently broken), but it’s coming along.
*For my library database I use Bookpedia. I’ve had it for years to catalog my extensive typography book collection, now I’m using it also for these folk art books. It can store all sorts of information and can also reformat and export it for you to use in other places. Bookpedia automatically created the table listing above.
