Gift Ideas from Jesse

ABC Gift Ideas 2015Every year we present you with our Gift Ideas: books, magazines, games or merchandise that we think would make great gifts in the December month.

This year we decided to introduce all our buyers to you at the same time.  That way, if you want an expert, you’ll know exactly who to turn to in which store.


Gift Ideas from Jesse, 2015

Jesse works in Amsterdam, and is the buyer for the Fashion, Art, Illustration, and Lifestyle sections.

Gift Ideas on display in the picture above:

What books from the list above do you want to highlight?

Cyber Realm by Wren McDonald.  It’s part of the NoBrow 17×23 series that gives up-and-coming talent in the illustration world a platform to show off on.

The Pot Book.  This is just a stunning book on ceramics, and now available in paperback.  It features classic works but also designs from quite a few modern artists, too.

Crucial Interventions by Richard Barnett, from the same makers as The Sick Rose.  It is filled with very beautiful illustrations of the evolution of surgery.  A really well-designed book, too.”

What soon-to-be-released title do people need to pre-order?

The Kinfolk Home, Face Paint: The Story of Makeup, and Oscar de la Renta: His Legendary World of Style.  Some have been in and are sold out already, and we’re impatiently waiting for new stock!”

More buyers with their gift ideas will be presented on the blog every day. An overview post can be found here.
