More books! being read all the time and shared. This is a companion piece with the Nov. 2011 "Reader" short film. Since then the small studio room has changed. I just finished building a double face floor to ceiling book cabinet ready to engulf more books, 100 square feet to be precise. It was halfway finished when I made this new film. I remember once reading Jan Myrdal's autobiography where he measured his library in feet. I was a hungry young lad then reading a book-a-day and making a floral personal library. Books by-the-foot to a builder and a reader is music to the ears.

The authors: Kent Johnson, Gabriela Mistral, Ursula K. Le Guin, Gerard Malanga, Eudora Welty, William Maxwell, Alfred Jarry, Bill Deemer, Peter Berg, Benjamin Cawthra, Johnny Cash, Kitchen Cat, Clarice Lispector
