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.

The Paper Garden by Molly Peacock

In 1772, upon the death of her second husband, Mary Delany arose from her grief, picked up a pair of scissors, and, at the age of seventy-two, created a new art form: mixed-media collage. Over the next decade, Mrs. Delany produced an astonishing 985 botanically correct, breathtaking cut-paper flowers, now housed in the British Museum. As she tracks the extraordinary life of Delany, internationally acclaimed poet Molly Peacock weaves in delicate parallels in her own life and, in doing so, creates a profound and beautiful examination of the nature of creativity and art.
