The Beauty of the Book

Martha Thompson

It's crunch time peeps. The countdown is real. I have a few more ideas for the hard to buy. A beautiful coffee table book is a wonderful gift and can be for all ages. They make a statement.

Tom Ford. Oh how Tom Ford has changed the Gucci label from stodgy to contemporary without losing any of its mystique. This book catalogs Ford's designs with Gucci and Yves St. Laurent. The book contains two hundred iconic images including some that have never been seen before. Just Beautiful!

Dior Catwalk. From the founding of the House of Dior in 1947 to present day with over 170 collections shown through the catwalk, this book is just amazing 

Chanel. Over 150 Karl Lagerfield collections are shown in this beautifully illustrated book. The book not only contains beautiful photographs but provides a short biography of Lagerfield as well text about each collection.

Vogue Living. You know I couldn't not post a Vogue Book. This book contains over 400 photographs of the homes and gardens that have appeared in Vogue magazine. A beautiful resource of homes that we have drooled over while turning the pages of the magazine.

What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment.
