Humans are born with two eyes to see and one eye to know. 3rd dimension (3D) senses are the senses we have for human survival: sight, sound, touch, taste, smell. The 5th dimension (5D) sense we have is knowing. Since we live in the 3D reality, or matrix, it’s easy to experience the 3D senses […]
I was sent this Tweet a few days. I had no idea art collectors watched and brought books for the art work of the covers. (I have never transferred anything from Twitter. So bear with me if I gets it wrong.) Each tweet is what the book collector had to say. I asked the only artist I knows about this constituent or element of the art world and she said yes, it’s true. Collectors look at things differently. The art world is different from the literature world and a collector’s world is far more broader in what’s considered art in the literary world. That’s why collectors search for book art in antique stores. Depending on who designed it or painted it, the skills of the artist and many other factors such as blending of colors, brush strokes, pencil etching and etc. The cover can be worth a lot especially if it’s an original reprint. I also asked about the subject of ‘the cinematic look’ and what exactly was the woman referring to? She explained the collector was speaking of digital created or digitally remastered art. I then wanted to know does it make a difference? She said yes, because a shrewd collector can tell the difference between that which is created by hand and that created by digital. Art created by hand holds the highest value in the art world.
Now, my question is how can a writer appease both the art and literary world? Or do we just keep doing what we do which is write and let the two worlds of art figure it out? 🙂
I’m saying Happy Father’s Day to a wonderful, caring man who was my dad. I was blessed to know him. 🙂
