Travis Louie's Curiosities
Travis Louie's Curiosities
by Travis Louie
Edition: Hardcover

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful artwork in a charming book, 11 Jan 2011
Travis's portraits are truly remarkable. Sensitive, wistful and characterful, but always respectful to the sitter. The little snippets of autobiographical information and anecdotes relating to his subjects are wonderfully appropriate and gently amusing. The subject matter is dark, but in a warm way, if that's possible.

Personally, I can't wait for the next book by Mr Louie and I really hope that he exhibits some of his work in the UK soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars very interesting, academic yet easy to read, 11 Jan 2011
An interesting read, written in an easy to read, but still academic style which makes it an authoritative and informative yet still entertaining read. Recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too simplistic, 17 July 2005
I bought this book hoping to learn something about myself and how I behave in relationships. Unfortunately, it seems to be overly simplistic and lacking in that much real insight. It also seemed to be rather biased against mankind in general, which might make us women feel better (sometimes!) but doesn't really help get to the bottom of how we behave in relationships.
There were some useful elements of the book, but if you're looking for a thoughtful, insightful and serious book, I think you're likely to be disappointed with this one. It was far too superficial for me!
