So I just got these in the mail today and I have never been so excited to read books! If you’re interested in contemporary art and what the art industry is like give these a read. The $12 Million Dollar Stuffed Shark talks about the economics and marketing of contemporary art and patterns of investment. Seven Days in the Art World is a day-in-the-life narrative of the inner workings of the contemporary art world set in New York, Los Angeles, London, Venice, Tokyo, and Basel. I’ll keep you all updated.

Here are the deeper synopses of each book:
