“Reading made Don Quixote a gentleman, but believing what he read made him mad.” [by George Bernard Shaw]
Below our weekly reading list according to each of your needs.
Ettore Sottsass “Pictures from a window”, published by Adelphi
To whom wants to be captured and fascinated by the eyes of one of the greatest architect designer, who was able to see an hidden world that no one could have seen it before. A collection of 26 pics with the same number of surreal captions.
Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s in Wonderland” with artwork by Yayoi Kusama, published by Penguin Group
To whom has kids or recently became an aunt like me, this book is a perfect gift even if it is not only for the kids. Illustrated by Yayoi Kusama, one of the most famous and talented visual artist, I simply adore her. The combination is perfect and I couldn’t resist to buy it, Alice is one of my favorite children’s book and I am a big fan of Yayoi Kusama‘s illustrations. Definitely a book that you must have in your collection, maybe I have to buy an other copy for my niece…
Charles Darwin “Hosts of living forms” published by Penguin Books
“In all cases the new and improved forms of life will tend to supplant the old and improved forms”
To whom likes to read the classics but with a touch of style. The embossed book cover is stunning, I love the idea. It is an irresistible collection that you can not miss it!.
Pushpesh Pant “India cookbook”, published by Phaidon [a nice present from Aj Wittamon, Prim and Bow Thx so much!]
The tagline on the book reads “The only book on Indian food you’ll ever need”, and actually it is true. However I have to admit that the first thing caugh my eyes it was the nice packaging design rather then the recipes. The book is packaged inside a canvas bag. Then the layout of the book is clean and minimal and the pages have different colors. A lovely cookbook that I like to read when I need inspiration.
