Reading is as essential in the summer as swimming, camping and partying under the stars – a perfect way to spend hours on the sand or in your own backyard.

For art lovers on vacation away from galleries or museums, nothing beats a good art book for a dose of aesthetic (or mental) stimulation. But choosing from the dozens (hundreds!) of new titles released so far this year to find the best art books worth your time can be overwhelming. That’s why we’ve done the work – scouring catalogs and bestseller lists to find the best of the best.

We’ve collected 10 art-related titles, including exhibition catalogs, compilations of critical writings, and artist biographies. Whether it’s a crisp new story about French artist Marcel Duchamp, a tumultuous biography of painter Francis Bacon in graphic novel form, or a stunning collection of never-before-seen photographs by iconoclast Ray Johnson, there is a book for every type of art lover.

Take a look at our current favorites below, enjoy, and don’t forget the sunscreen.
