A collection of books that Krantz uses in works on paper. She acquired some of these while at a residency in upstate New York. Thinking she needed to be leaner in her approach, she went to that residency with little more than a roll of paper, a bottle of ink, and three brushes. “I got up there with these minimal supplies and freaked out. I’m used to having all my things around me and I thought, I can’t do this! There happened to be this giant library sale. I came back to the studio with six boxes of books. Like, now I can work!”
