The Art Book by the Editors of Phaidon

My old edition of The Art Book has gone through many evolutions as a part of my library, beginning as an incredibly user-friendly reference book. Eventually I became so enamored with some prints that they made their way into tiny frames and onto my walls. Later on, other pieces became starting points for collages and various art projects of my own. That small book managed to last me for probably a decade and was a constant source of inspiration. Now it’s time for a new one to replace my tattered copy on the shelf, and there’s a beautiful new edition out just in time! A wonderful gift for art lovers and appreciators of all kinds.

The Anatomy of Type by Stephen Coles & Tony Seddon

This book is a candy store for font geeks and a revelation waiting to happen for anyone unfamiliar with the variety, artistry, and history of typefaces. And the title is no joke. Grey’s Anatomy has nothing on the shockingly detailed anatomical illustrations of the 100 typefaces analyzed here. It’s the perfect gift for any design enthusiast and a wonderful invitation to the fascinating world of stories behind the glyphs we use to tell our stories.

Dreaming in Color by Kaffe Fassett

Kaffe Fassett has led an extraordinary life. He spent much of his youth in Big Sur, where his parents bought a cabin from Orson Welles and transformed it into the world-famous Nepenthe restaurant, a gathering place for artists and bohemians.

Renowned for his explosive use of color, Fassett has embraced needlepoint, mosaics, rugmaking, tapestries, yarn and fabric design, costume and set design, and quilting, becoming one of the most beloved and influential designers today in the process. This joy-filled, gorgeous book is perfect for anyone who likes to make—or appreciate—beautiful things.
