I reckon all of you who love Artbooks know that feel and, to the odds of others, your OCD when it comes to taking care of your beloved books and keeping them nice and shiny. So frequently I just move them all out of my shelf to wipe off some dust and stuff - and if there is one little insect crawling on a page or a book I really get serious issues about it (if I was an Anime character imagine some sort of overreacting that's typical for such kind of characters).
But at the same time one notices that if there is something you hold very dear, it is a good thing as it shows that you have some sort of a responsibility-feeling or so that keeps you from letting things going downhill, or to prevent you neglecting what has to be taken care off.
Even if it's just an artbook, but I guess you know what I am referring to.
Apart from being a massive OCD with my artbooks (and pencils, and anything I care about) I really look forward to get some new ones (mostly "The art of" books for games) and hopefully, some day in the distant future, I can still open and enjoy these as if they were brand new. I am really eager to see how designs and influences might change over the next maybe 30 years. And hell I'd need a whole room solely for my artbooks by then.
Hope you're doing well so far and enjoy your weekend.
