Ahoy, mateys! From the people that brought you the childhood classic, Dragonology, this book is sure to keep kids of all ages entertained for hours. William Lubber uses primary documents to track the vicious pirate Arabella Drummond in a search that will take you through the golden age of piracy. This book is an adventure and a story all wrapped into one, and is sure to be a hit for any young adventurer!
From the creator of the eminently adorable Instagram account @sadanimalfacts (featuring such tragic true tidbits as, ‘rhinos make a squeaking sound to call for their friends when they’re lost’). This wonderful, all-inclusive celebration of the weirdness of love features notable couples through history, animal courting rituals, and all the strange things we do when we’re half of a pair. I’m tossing you a softball here, folks: get this sweet, silly book for your partner for in lieu of the Hallmark card. Or for yourself, if you’re a single, hopeless romantic like me!
A magnificent ode to the disappearing natural world. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous, and the intertwining of letters and images has a great effect. The concept is also very appealing for logophiles (such as yours truly).
A PERFECT GIFT BOOK! There is something for absolutely everyone in this funny, touching, hair-raising collection of real-life encounters. Selected best storytelling entries from The Moth Radio Hour.
Do I have a dog, no. Do I love this beautiful, charming, funny dog book? Yes!
Visually stunning and beautifully designed, this comprehensive history of the city begins with its geological origins (under 4,000 feet of ice in the last Ice Age), through the periods before European colonization, 250 years as the most important city in North America, through the present day. Many of the maps and illustrations are original for this volume, and the text represents the contributions of 40 historians, scholars and experts. It is that rare item, an indispensable reference book that is informative and gorgeous at the same time.
A gift for every lonely painter who lives in a box of paints.
It's not just enormous and hilarious, it's definitive and comprehensive and brilliant. Bob Mankoff, longtime cartoon editor, has curated over 3,000 cartoons into categories (Adam and Eve, snowmen, and about 250 others) and has added sparkling, hysterical commentary. There is no better gift you can buy for anyone who loves humor - or for yourself.
