Andy Goldsworthy: Projects

Andy Goldsworthy is one of my favorite artists. His pieces, which he makes with natural materials and builds onsite using his own two hands and little else, are intricate feats that defy imagination. He works with a patience and vision that I cannot fathom, and it shows in the placement of every twig, every stone, every leaf. This stunning book showcases his largest projects from around the world. It’ll take your breath away. - Flannery

The Geometry of Hand Sewing by Natalie Chanin

Seeing the slow fashion movement gain momentum and popularity over the last several years has been a source of joy in my life. Few crafters out there embody the lifestyle of slow fashion better than Natalie Chanin of Alabama Stitch Book. Her new book is peppered with detailed shots of gorgeous garments and samples of a variety of hand-embroidered stitches, from the beautifully basic to the incredibly complex. - Megan

Ungrateful Mammals by Dave Eggers

I cannot remember the last time I loved an art book this much. So much is portrayed through Dave Eggers’s (yes, that Dave Eggers) loose, loving strokes, and his captions are perfectly paired with their animal. I can’t stop flipping through the pages. From a side-eyeing Boston terrier dispensing love advice, to the musings of a tortoise, these are animals I want to be friends with, or at least whose conversations I want to eavesdrop on. - Rachel

The New Bohemians Handbook by Justina Blakeney

Justina Blakeney’s colorful, comfortable, and free-spirited design style made her first book, The New Bohemians, a bestseller. Now Blakeney returns with a handbook that shows readers how to create that style for themselves. The best part about her design philosophy is that the most important elements have nothing to do with money; rather, Blakeney stresses clarity, color, plants, and natural materials to create a welcoming home that speaks to you and makes you (and your guests) happy the moment they walk in the door. I can’t get enough of her love of pattern, texture, tiles, and textiles—not to mention her joyous nature. “Home décor should be fun. If you’re not having fun, you’re doing it wrong.” - S.B.

David Sedaris Diaries: A Visual Compendium

I’ve only seen a glimpse of this new collection of Sedaris’s work, but it looks like we’re all in for a treat. The author’s trademark wit and dark, self-deprecating humor are paired with photos and original artwork by Sedaris himself. This big compendium gives the reader a full, three-dimensional experience and is perhaps the closest any of us will ever get to being inside David Sedaris’s head. - Jade

Pattern Behavior by Natalie Kossar

Most self-respecting sewers know how to laugh at themselves when a project doesn’t go as planned or doesn’t look quite as chic as they had hoped. With Pattern Behavior, you can laugh at something other than yourself between projects. A crafty version of the classic postcard, with its saucy captions it lets you see what those vintage McCall’s girls are up to when you leave them alone in your pattern drawer. - Megan

Endangered by Tim Flach

Holy heck, this book is gorgeous. Flach’s goal was to portray sameness and otherness between humans and critters, connecting us all together in an emotional burst of “Yes, we must save them because look, they are us.” And he succeeds, with breathtakingly detailed photography (let’s count hippo chin hairs, shall we?) and reminders that we are both the animals’ stewards and the ones endangering them. This lovely book is intimate and grand. - Rachel
