The common theme among these books is that they all explore various aspects of art and collecting. Some focus on specific types of art, such as American quilts or Celtic art, while others delve into the lives and works of individual artists like Beatrix Potter or Judy Chicago. Many also offer behind-the-scenes glimpses into museums and exhibits, such as the Thorne Rooms at the Art Institute of Chicago or the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Additionally, there are books that explore collecting itself, such as Colleen Moore's memoir about miniature dollhouses, or provide advice on how to live a creative life through the experiences of professional artists.
