Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) October 3, 2006
Many people think they have to be rich or highly-cultured to become art collectors, but that's not true.
Now, there's finally a new book to prove it. "ART IN KING SIZE BEDS: A COLLECTOR'S JOURNAL" is a first of its kind artbook for real people. Join writer, journalist and art collector Michael K. Corbin on a journey through the world of contemporary art. It's a new, fresh and down to earth exploration of art, life, artists, collecting, travel, galleries, museums, art fairs and fantastic people. It's full of tips for budding art collectors. Finally, an artbook that's warm, witty and enlightening! If the thought of even walking into an art museum or gallery intimidates people, they should read "Art In King Size Beds: A Collector's Journal." It's full of stories about art told in an exciting, friendly way. Stunning illustrations of art from the author's own collection highlight this engaging book. Leave the textbooks to the art historians. Do they even like art, anyway? "Art In King Size Beds: A Collector's Journal," will make an art lover out of anyone.
"I wanted to create a book that promotes the work of emerging artists in a new way," says author Michael K. Corbin. "Most people will never be able to own a Picasso painting, but perhaps they can acquire the work of a very talented artist who lives in their own community," he adds. "Most living artists create work that is affordable. Why not support them and bring the power of original art into your life?"
Yet, "Art In King Size Beds: A Collector's Journal," is about much more than art collecting. It's also a true memoir of dazzling art adventures and an advocate for the crucial role that art plays in our world. It's a unique book. Come along for the ride!
Michael K. Corbin is a broadcast journalist, avid art collector, writer, runner and yoga enthusiast. He is a New York City native who now resides in Indianapolis, Indiana and frequently travels in search of new art and artists.
