Impulse Purchase of the Week – 8/13


Want to add a splash of style to your home’s interior? Well, we discovered a new coffee-table book about one of KC’s most prolific artists, Tom CorbinTom Corbin Continued invites the reader into his world. It’s Corbin’s first published book in over 13 years. Available at and Rainy Day Books, the anthology details the expanding body of Corbin’s work from roughly the last decade. ($40)

Through the use of exquisite photography and wonderful prose, the reader is taken on a journey of Corbin’s life as an artist. “My work over the last three decades has experienced quite an evolution—that from a representational artist to an instinctive artist,” says Corbin. “Where my early sculptures were modeled in a traditional manner, my current work is more abstract and serves as a metaphor for the human condition. The common thread running through my evolving style? My love of the figure as a muse.”
