Books about contemporary drawing
Drawings & Notes Favorite Books about contemporary drawing
When starting researching contemporary drawing for Drawing & Notes in 2008, a couple of books were (and are still) of much use. All these publications were sources of inspiration and good guides to discover the varied world of contemporary drawing. And still are.

Vitamin D - Books about contemporary drawing
Vitamin D  (Phaidon, 2007) 
Probably the most influential and inspiring compendium of contemporary drawing. It shows the work of 109 artists, using a wide variety of styles, from representational to abstract. Along with the descriptions by the curators who picked the artists for the book, it was a very rich well for this weblog.
