Lisa Jenks’s Book List

One of my favorite things (after reading) is to collect design and art books. I will use any sort of excuse to add one if there is the slightest chance that it may be helpful for a particular project. Failing that, if a book is beautifully printed and I am feeling slightly flush, into the collection it goes. I have slowed down as of late, though, since my bookcases are a bit crowded.

I find I am now drawn to books that have scientific, metaphysical, or spiritual leanings. Even though I have some novels on my list, I find that these days they are not catching my eye, but I’m not sure why.

Gerald Berjonneau
Jean-Louis Sonnery

This was the first art book I bought when I was in the midst of designing my initial jewelry collection. I’ve been hooked ever since.

Stuart Durant

Nice overview that begins with William Morris and extends through to the 1980s.

Anthony J. P. Meyer

A beautiful visual survey of Oceanic art—it brings to mind my favorite rooms at the Met.
