Artist Ross Bleckner clipped articles from The New York Times for years, assembling them in a journal that inspired his paintings. His new book, My Life in The New York Times (Allworth Press, $25), is a reprint of that journal, filled with fragments of images and text interspersed with the painter’s watercolor additions. Structured somewhat like a self-help book chronicling the themes of change and loss, the work is a thoughtful gift for the art aficionado and the creative spirit alike. allworth.com; amazon.com.
