    1. Timeless, timely simply fucking phenomenal Also, a weirdly perfect summer re read like a feminist, art world version of Walden.


    2. I had high hopes for this book I thought it would help me understand how prehistoric shapes images were incorporated into contemporary art I m sure it does that, but it s way too hard for me to understand Or maybe I should say.I don t have the time to read it slowly enough to figure out what it means.I think this is mostly an art book philosophizes about the function of art and the shape color textures of art It s than I can digest at this time.
