Delighting in the look and feel of books, conceptual artist Nina Katchadourian’s playful
photographic series proves that books’ covers—or more specifically, their spines—can
speak volumes. Over the past two decades, Katchadourian has perused libraries across
the globe, selecting, stacking, and photographing groupings of two, three, four, or five
books so that their titles can be read as sentences, creating whimsical narratives from the
text found there. Thought-provoking, clever, and at times laugh-out-loud funny (one
cluster of titles from the Akron Museum of Art’s research library consists of: Primitive
Art /Just Imagine/Picasso/Raised by Wolves), Sorted Books is an enthralling collection
of visual poems full of wry wit and bookish smarts.
