Recently, I had a conversation with James Springer who runs the Library Service Center (LSC). He mentioned an art book that was in a suitcase. With some help, I tracked down the item, which is a collection celebrating Andy Warhol’s Interview edited by Sandra J. Brant and Ingrid Sischy. The seven volume set focuses on interviews, covers, pictures, fashion, and directors. It even includes a facsimile of the first and the 35th anniversary issue.
Art/Architecture librarian, Jet Prendeville maintains and selects books for the Brown Fine Arts book collection. Some of the art books and facsimiles are kept at the LSC and can only be viewed within the Woodson. In a sense, the art books are our babies, too. We always love to look at them.
