A nonfiction book

 

As soon as I get time I’m going to dig into:

 

Ayn Rand’s The Virtue of Selfishness E. H. Gombrich’s Art and Illusion: A Study in the Psychology of Pictorial Representation.
Ayn Rand here sets forth the moral principles of Objectivism, the philosophy that holds man’s life–the life proper to a rational being–as the standard of moral values and regards altruism as incompatible with man’s nature, with the creative requirements of his survival, and with a free society. A classic in the philosophy of art, it discusses the thinking and psychological process of depiction through paintings.
