People by Blexbolex

Fans (young and old) of graphic art or illustration will be inspired and captivated by French illustrator Blexbolex’s new book. A collection of simple yet sophisticated silkscreens that look both vintage and modern at the same time, with each page featuring a single image of a person with a word caption at the top. The artwork is gorgeous, but the real brilliance lies in the juxtaposition of images and text (painter next to tagger; nudist next to invisible man). Blexbolex’s previous book, Seasons, was a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of 2010; look for this one to be highly acclaimed, as well.

The Art Museum edited by Phaidon editors

The ultimate book for art lovers! Yes, it’s $200, but The Art Museum is quite possibly the finest art collection ever assembled between two covers. A virtual art museum in a book, it features 1,000 oversized pages of over 2,700 works of art—from Leonardo’s Mona Lisa to paintings from the caves at Lascaux. Ten years in the making, this unique book was created with a global team of specialists in all fields of art, including museum curators and educators, who collected important works as they might be displayed in the ideal museum for the art lover. It is spectacular.

The Louvre by Erich Lessing & Vincent Pomeréde

Looking for a less virtual collection of artwork? This gorgeous book showcases every single painting in the permanent collection of the Louvre, the most visited museum in the world. It even comes with a companion DVD, which can be browsed by artist, date, school, genre, or location in the Louvre. That last feature means you can tour the Louvre room by room, as if you were walking through the building—but without all the crowds!
