A Library of Misremembered Books: When We're Searching for a Book but Have Forgotten the Title

by Marina Luz - £9.99  Chronicle Books (2021)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781452171593 | ISBN 10: 1452171599

How do you find a book when you can't recall the title... or the author? This homage to a common reader's dilemma is a gift the booklover in your life won't soon forget.
 
Readers know all too well the comedy and tragedy of forgetting the name of a must-find book. Inspired by this torturous predicament, artist Marina Luz creates paintings of books based on the descriptions we use when we can't remember their titles—mining Internet book-search forums for the quirky, vague, and often hilarious language we come up with in these moments.
 
This volume collects dozens of these imaginary books into a library all their own: Titles like "Cat, Possibly Named Henry," "It Was All a Dream," or "Something-Something, Beverly Hills" inspire dreaming up their contents, often as entertaining as trying to guess the real book behind them.
 
A celebration of book love unlike any other, this petite book is a clever gift for bibliophiles that will spark knowing smiles.j
