Learning about the art world can seem elusive. It shouldn’t be.

Building your art bookshelf is a forever-ongoing process. I’ve included an Amazon link to help you find the right next book for you, but you can always purchase at your local bookstore in person or at bookshop.org.

The books are organized into categories. The First Books are for those brand-new to the art world. More seasoned collectors can jump ahead to dive deeper into specific threads.

  2. Artists & Art History
  3. The Science & Art Of Collecting
  4. The Buying & Selling Of Art
  5. The Art Market
