Make Your Holidays Orange!

I started to notice how many orange-covered books we had in the store so I thought I'd share them with you, just like I would the fruit. Not just similarly tinted, all great books as well!

 Marvel Comics: The Untold Story
By Sean Howe
A highly-recommended history of one of the two big comics companies. From Timely to Secret Wars and beyond, it's a fascinating story of the evolution of the super heroes in pop culture and their creators who were almost constantly battling with their bosses for proper compensation.

A Light That Never Goes Out
by Tony Fletcher
A pretty exhaustive bio on the legendary Morrissey & Marr partnership that details how their bonds were forged and ultimately broken. Recommended if you are a fan, Which I am. Big time.

Little Big Books: Illustrations for Children's Picture Books
   Bios of, interviews with and work by some of the best illustrators for kids' books out there. A shortlist: Oliver Jeffers, Emiliano Ponzi, Fabrice Houdry, David Sala, and many, many more. Seriously gorgeous.

Grace: A Memoir
by Grace Coddington
Vogue Magazine creative director Coddington was the inadvertent star of The September Issue, the celebrated documentary on Anna Wintour and the making of an issue of Vogue. One of the more acclaimed books of the season, and for good reason.

 Curiosity and Method: Ten Years of Cabinet Magazine
Oh man, Cabinet magazine articles selected and compiled one the huge (and yes, orange) book (and reasonably priced as well,  might add). Recommended if you like reading about design, art, culture, science and technology Magazine.
