I have provided a list of great holiday book gift ideas a couple of days ago in one of my blog posts, but I canot wait to share another great book I just bought today as a gift to an old friend.
This book is "Art & Nature: Three Centuries of Natural History Art from Around the World". It's writen by Judith Magee who managed the Library of the Natural History Museum, London for over a decade. It is truly an elegant and vibrantly illustrated book, it provides natural history images painstakingly rendered by artists over centuries.
A great gift item. Available at Amazon.
