It’s the year of giving relevant, thoughtful, beautiful books.
Have you got the hippest library on your block? Does that special somebody need a hardbound or paperback boost to intensify his or her own collection? Well, we’ve got a few starting points — a dust-jacketed budget-buster or two — for that holiday hope chest.
The categories are perennially passionate Metro Times fare: music, films, art, photography, poetry, analysis and introspection. But the specific choices — put together by our usual bunch of writerly suspects — are far from déjà vu. So click these cool titles with that photographic memory of yours and read on, dear reader, read on.
