The Survey of Bookish Habits

The Survey of Bookish Habits opened at IAMB Gallery on March 7, 2020. Shoppers at City Books, Pittsburgh's oldest used bookstore, and friends of The Habitorium were surveyed about how they read, store, share and think about books. Survey responses were gathered by mail, hand and proxy from September through December 2019. A group of paintings, titled after specific habits offered by the participants, are available for sale. Surveys completed and received through April 1, 2020 were assembled into a Report on Bookish Habits.
