Instagram Update: A Life Made By Hand ~ The Story of #ruthasawa 🌼 Written and #illustrated by #andreadaquino • Published September 3rd by @abramschronicle @abramsbooks @papress “Ruth Asawa (1926-2013) was an influential and award-winning sculptor, a beloved figure in the Bay Area art world, and a devoted activist who advocated tirelessly for arts education. This lushly illustrated book by collage artist Andrea D’Aquino brings Asawa’s creative journey to life, detailing the influence of her childhood in a farming family, and her education at Black Mountain College where she pursued an experimental course of education with leading avant-garde artists and thinkers such as Anni and Josef Albers, Buckminster Fuller, Merce Cunningham, and Robert Rauschenberg. Delightful and substantial, this engaging title for young art lovers includes a page of teaching tools for parents and educators.” #books #bookstagram #bookblogger #reading #booklover #bookworm #read #bookish #bibliophile #book #booknerd #love #bookshelf #bookaddict #bookaholic #bookstagrammer #author #instabooks #booksofinstagram #reader #bookphotography #art #booklove #literature
