We’d like to take the opportunity to thank all of those who got involved with Book Week Scotland last week.
Our stall with recommendations from the Glasgow Women’s Library, alumni, the Feminist Society and Artschool I/O was filled with captivating books.
In case you missed the stall, we thought we would share some of the recommendations.
Artschool I/O recommended Form and code: in design, art, and architecture, which covers the role of software in visual design, art, and architecture. Its intent is to generate interest in creating visual and spatial form with software across diverse fields by focusing on the history, theory, and practice of software in the arts.
The Feminist Society had loads of great recommendations. Amongst them was Clothes, clothes, clothes, music, music, music, boys, boys, boys by Viv Albertine, member of punk band The Slits, and The sacred and the feminine: imagination and sexual difference, edited by Griselda Pollock and Victoria Turvey Sauron and featuring essays from writers of varied backgrounds.
The Glasgow Women’s Library recommended Ain’t I a woman, named after Sojourner Truth’s speech of the same name, by bell hooks. They also recommended “anything” by Cindy Sherman, as well as fiction by Margaret Atwood.
Thanks also to everybody who made recommendations via twitter and facebook – we hope you saw your recommendation on the stall.
