Eye Candy, Brain Food

Anyone who knows me knows I love a good book, and I think a thoughtfully-chosen book makes for a great gift. Everyone loves to add to their library, freshen up their coffee table. Art books are especially perfect at this time of the year; and here are some that I’ve been thinking about gifting (and also for myself!)

1> Kate Moss. The quintessential cool-girl-turned-modern-woman. Can never get enough Kate!

2> Ross Bleckner. I love his art: magical, colorful, sensual.

3> Elizabeth Peyton. One of my favorite artists. This woman is so talented, so inspiring.

4> Melvyn Bragg: The Adventure of English. I loved this book and think it’d be perfect for my Dad-he quotes Shakespeare often and is a real lover of language. After reading this book, I really began to think about every word I say (even when I am in a fitting and say a dress is too “armholey”.)
