a look at books inspiring art in Philadelphia.
Bookish is a project that documents the literary works being read by those creating, curating and looking at art in Philadelphia.
It will be printed in its first edition as a light-weight zine for the B.Y.O.T.Y Book Fair at Little Berlin, and will be distributed in galleries and alternative art spaces throughout Philadelphia.
As a catalogue of the readings on your bedside table, Bookish aims to help spark conversation and cross-pollination of literature influencing the community.
Anyone can contribute to Bookish, simply tell us what you're reading using the form on the right. Deadline for inclusion in the first edition is October 15th, 2009.
