Though we all know better, it seems that history happens in black and white. When we see a color photo of a Nazi or the Korean War it's so unexpected and startling it just looks wrong. Black and white also allows us to hold history, especially the painful parts, at some remove. In an effort to bring it closer, authors Wolfgang Wild and Jordan Lloyd have painstakingly colorized some iconic moments from the past so vividly the viewer feels like they are watching the moment unfold. A great gift for the history or photography buff or anyone who enjoys an eyeopener.

This unrelenting portrait of the greedy squandering of our precious natural resources is both a beautiful excursion into the heart of human darkness and a brutal story that squarely combats the myth of the West.

I can't think of a more evocative narrative muse than Edward Hopper. Apparently Lawrence Block feels the same because he asked a diverse group of author friends (Stephen King, Joyce Carol Oates and more) to pick a painting and write a story about it. This carefully curated collection features ensnaring tales from all genres so strong it's hard to pick a favorite. With its full color plates, this would make a lovely gift for fans of Hopper's broody genius or anyone intruiged by the intersection of artistic mediums.

Equal parts a memoir about moving solo to the big city and a criticism of visual artists (Darger, Warhol, Hopper) who prominantly feature loneliness in their work, this book is a weird hybrid that totally works. My favorite book of 2016!
