bookish inspiration

June 4, 2015


If you’re looking for art resources in print to inspire your writing or fuel your research, here are a couple of suggestions:

The Whatcom Museum, in Bellingham, Washington, has announced the opening of the Joyce Morse Reference Library. Located in the Lightcatcher building and open by appointment on Wednesdays and Thursdays, the library “contains more than 500 titles about art and artists from the Pacific Northwest, Whatcom County history, and the history and art of Indians of the Pacific Northwest.” To view the catalog of titles, visit the Bellingham Public Library online catalog.

If you’d rather browse online, visit the The Metropolitan Museum of Art site, MetPublications. With some 1,500 titles (and growing), the collection includes books, online publications, and Met Bulletins and Journals published since 1964. Except for in-print publications, everything is downloadable, free, as PDFs. Browse all 1,534 titles here.

As a side note, if you’re looking for prompts to inspire ekphrastic poetry, visit the Met’s Collection page and subscribe to Artwork of the Day.
