Ansel Adams always had a special affinity for Yosemite, and that connection is apparent in his photographs of the valley and outlying area. I love the way his images capture the wild spirit of the granite spires, twisting trees, and reflective waters. Released as a celebration of Yosemite’s 150 years, this magnificent book is a worthy homage to both a breathtaking place and an iconic photographer.

Artist Maira Kalman has curated a book of beautiful, delicate, extraordinary, and weird objects from the Cooper Hewitt Museum that have one thing in common: They make her gasp with delight. She weaves her own personal history though these objects, her notes being at once intimate, universally human and empathetic. Her illustrations are so lush and satisfying you could stare at the colors and brushstrokes all day. My Favorite Things is funny, somber, sweet, and quirky.

Fashion and color are inextricably linked, as color is usually the first thing our eyes fix on. For years, designers have turned to color experts Pantone for inspiration, and this new book neatly displays the relationship. Organized by each distinct hue, with the classic Pantone color strip running along the bottom of each page, designs of every style grace these pages. Pantone on Fashion is a bright and glamorous look at over a century of fashion.
