Alexa Hampton’s Book List

I have always been a big reader. My tastes are far-ranging—from police procedurals to history to biography and even chick lit.

Glenn Andres
John Hunisak
A. Richard Turner

A two-volume tour de force about my favorite city on earth. My parents met in Florence on a blind date!

Peter J. Gärtner

My favorite architect (along with Schinkel, Soane, and Alberti). A great sculptor and a great artist, too.

John Richardson

Not as pulpy as Arianna Huffington’s biography—more serious and more in-depth.

Giorgio Vasari

Any art historian, serious or not, must read this book—part history, part fiction and part propaganda.

Nancy Mitford

John Berger

I read this book as a freshman at Brown University and it introduced me to a new way of looking at images. It’s an interesting text.
