Suggestion: Book List with Reviews in Sortable db

Create a sortable database of books and other resources that S&M mention in their podcasts. I realize this is going to be an extensive list. NOTE: I just noticed that you added a comprehensive list with links and pictures to the "Expressionism - Draftsmen S3E14." Very nice. - - - Last night I started to read, The Story of Art by E.H. Gombrich, which I have owned for years and am delighted to find it full of interesting comparisons and items such as "The Expression of the figure determines if a person likes or dislikes the picture." The BBC Power of Art by Simon Schama starts with Caravaggio! What a great beginning of the series. It's free on YouTube. In his animation book, Preston Blair covers a lot of helpful drawing tips and states that good drawing is the cornerstone of success. Love it! Thanks.

E.H. Gombrich's The Story of Art book is so good! Page 480 live active painters vs. dead masters and American's rebellious nature influencing Europeans. The Paris Art Exhibitions!!!! Gosh, there is so much for S&M to chat about. It reminded me of David McCullough's The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris book and "not all pioneers went west!" Can you imagine being born & raised in America and then experiencing 1800s Paris?!? A fantastic read.

You're going to want to add Andrew Joseph Keith's book "An Artist's E-Ray Vision" to the list. Uhm... a man with THREE first names?!?
