Mason Curry, Daily Rituals: How Artists Work


Mason Curry's book is a collection of artist's daily rituals and gives you a perfect snapshot into the lives of historical figures from Proust to Dickens. These bizarre timetables include Beethoven counting out exactly 60 coffee beans a day, Mozart having his hair done every morning at 6am and W H Auden whose routine was so specific he even timed when the postman would arrive.
