Here are a few of our favourite responses. We put together a display board, with all the entries as it made for fascinating reading, so if you’re in the vicinity do have a look, you may be inspired too!
“I love all the images in this book – black and white images of a time gone by…and who could fail to smile at the image on the cover?” Marie Ryan
The Arcades Project by Walter Benjamin
“Labyrinthine, factual, unprecedented, this history of the 19th century is, like its subject, radically incomplete, indescribable and fascinating. I got lost there in 1999 and can, to the attentive reader, still be glimpsed somewhere between pages 542 and 543.” Kieran Cashell
Please Pay Attention Please: Bruce Nauman's Words, Writings and Interviews by B Nauman “This is my favourite book because every time I am in a bad mood or just fed up with what I’m doing or making – Nauman’s comments on Art and Sculpture would encourage anyone to continue their Art-Making.” Michéal Conlon
Graffiti World : Street Art from 5 Continents by Nicholas Ganz
“Amazing” Sam Keehan
Head of Department of Art and Design took us on a "secret history" of her reading.. and what a delight it was!
What was the book that had the most influence on you in your college days? That’s a tricky one, as I spent a huge amount of my college days reading. Possibly "The Haunting of Hill House" by Shirley Jackson, the most perfect ghost story ever written.
Do you have any memory or story about your college library? Sitting in a cosy nook reading armloads of novels that had absolutely nothing to do with my designated courses…I believe I termed it ‘reading around the subject’.
If you were stranded on a desert Island what book would you like to have with you? One book? I’m afraid I’d need more. Preferably a library. But in the absence of same, I’d like "The Bloody Chamber" by Angela Carter, "The Secret History" by Donna Tartt, the complete works of Shirley Jackson, the collected works of Jane Austen and the complete works of Shakespeare.
