Still hunting for a few last-minute holiday gifts? It's ok; we don't judge. In fact, we're here to help! Books make great gifts - they're attractive, personal, useful... and if you give someone enough of them, it will make moving such a chore that they're guaranteed never to leave.
One of our favorites this year is Pictorial Webster's, a collection of images from various 19th c. Webster's dictionaries, compiled by Johnny Carrera. We love the subject juxtapositions and detailed engraving, and even the binding itself is quite handsome.
And whichever books you choose to give this year, remember to support your local bookseller!
