Holiday Gift Guide: Dream Books

Museum shops are great places to find interesting reads and picturebooks.

Here are some books I'd love to flip through. I've tossed all subtleties aside at this point, so just consider this blog my holiday wish list.

Sex and Typography takes a look at Robert Brownjohn's ability to bring sexy to products, print, and film through graphic design. £ 25.00 @ The Design Museum.

Soviet Posters: The Sergo Grigorian Collection
is a collection of Soviet propaganda posters, many of them rare and never seen before. £ 12.99 @ The Design Museum.

A walk through the works of one of my favorite architects, Zaha Hadid. Zaha Hadid: The Complete Buildings and Projects, £ 16.95 @ The Design Museum.

A collection of Chuck Close's works, $50 @ MoMA.

I love houses and would love to take a walk through each and every home in Key Houses of the Twentieth Century. £ 28.00 @ The Design Museum.

Berlin fever continues. Mies in Berlin examines Mies van der Rohe's early career in socio-historical context. $35 for the paperback at the MoMA store.
