And I can’t resist sharing the titles of a couple of brilliant books…

1. The Louvre: All the Paintings

I had the sincere pleasure of reviewing this book, and I can honestly say that it would make a stunning gift for any art-lover. The Louvre itself published this inclusive collection, which features each of the 2,981 paintings in its permanent collection. Simply gorgeous. (On sale for $63.75)

2. Private Acts: The Acrobat Sublime

Personally, I’m fascinated with physical feats, and so when this collection of photographs landed at my desk, I had to pause at each beautiful image for a few moments…until I realized that I still had a stack of articles to edit. (On sale for $38.25)

3. M.C. Escher Pop-Ups

In one word, this book is fun; it’s literally a pop-up book of several of Escher’s works. (On sale for $25.46)

Enjoy your holiday shopping! ~ Cherie Haas
