I’ve been following the work of Olivia Parker ever since David R. Godine published the first book of her work, Signs of Life, in 1978. If you didn’t see her career retrospective at the Peabody Essex Museum this fall, you’re too late. You missed an amazing exhibition, but you can still enjoy this catalog of that show

An almost unbearably gorgeous book full of almost impossibly glamorous people.

A gorgeous book of photos of American bears.  This collection will be appreciated by both serious naturalists or those merely looking for the "aw" factor.  It is wonderful to see such joyful pictures of polar bears and a reminder that we should do everything possible to save the environment of these magnificent animals.
