Jen Bekman has put together a gift guide featuring affordable, original art for bibliophiles. Shown here is work from blogosphere favorite, Jane Mount, and from Valerie Roybal who is known for her layered surfaces composed of found bits and pieces, discarded books and magazines, handwritten letters, recipes and other ephemera.
Both the second and third works shown in this post are from Roybal's Secret Language series. Another 20 x 200 artist included in the gift guide is Lauren DiCioccio.
Click here for a related past post about DiCioccio's color-coded piece titled: Vogue JUL08.pg132 (what exactly are we breathing), here for the list of works still available, and here for those tunes to wrap by.
