Blackstock’s Collections: The Drawings of an Artistic Savant by Gregory L. Blackstock is a nifty little paperback filled with exquisite black and white drawings that make up visual lists. Blackstock, who is autistic, started making his lists at the age of 40. The lists, ranging from different types of knots, buoys, oriental temples, noisemakers, hoes, crows, balls, Irish joys and many more, are comprised of incredibly detailed drawings, complete with captions and notes. This book is a treat.
