Featured: Gifts for Book-Lovers!

There are still a few days left to find great gifts for everyone on your list. Brickbat Books is here to help with awesome new books, unusual small press editions, and unique out-of-print titles. Here are just a few ideas to get you started:

BOOKS! by Murray McCain & John Alcorn

Beautiful, smart, and whimsical look at what books are and what they can do. Reprint of the 1962 original. For anyone who loves, or is learning to love books, young or old. This would also be a terrific choice for connoisseurs of graphic design and type.

James Ensor: The Complete Paintings

James Ensor has received less attention than his peers like Vincent van Gogh and Edvard Munch, but his strange and sometimes grotesque paintings proved essential for later Expressionist and Surrealist artists. Featuring color illustrations of Ensor's vividly hued paintings and fascinating details about his life and work, this gorgeous slipcased catalogue raisonné would please anyone with an interest in modern art.

David Lynch: The Air Is On Fire

For the film fan who has everything, this catalog accompanied a 2007 exhibition that focused on David Lynch's "behind the scenes" working process, from photography to paintings to experimental films. The book is also accompanied by a CD with commentary by Lynch on his works.

These books, and thousands of others, can be purchased from:
