It's important to me to build a library. Books are expensive and tumblr is cheap, but I enjoy investing my paper in some paper.
The dollar stacks at The Strand Bookstore in NYC are a goldmine. I also collect magazines; my most prized publications are ten years of VIBE, and The Face from the 90's to the early 2000's. I acquired them all at once when I saw my neighbor putting them out on the street.
Here are some collages from my personal collection of photo books and publications.
