Ever since a PR friend (thanks Jessica) turned me onto DK Books, I’ve been a huge fan. The vast range, the beauty of the books, and the quality of the content; every time I get a new book it’s like being a kid at the book fair all over again.
Over the last 3 years, I have been adding to my library with a vast array of books, all published by my pals over at DK Books. From The Story of Food, an artful ode to the wonder that is food, to Drive, a collection of some of the best cars from around the world, to Whiskey, a book all about the drink I love, there is a whole world of stories and adventures to open and explore.
Some of the standouts for the holiday season are:
From the tech intrigued: Robot
From automata created by Leonardo Da Vinci to modern-day androids and animal robots, this book covers artificial intelligence (AI) throughout history. Discover the latest at the cutting edge of robotics, where science, technology, mechanical engineering, and computing meet as The Robot Book explains how robots work, how they are made, and how they help and sometimes hinder in modern society.
For the Artist in all of us: Art
Discover the history of art movements from classical Greek art to the Italian Renaissance, the pre-raphaelites, and the masters of impressionism with this bestselling DK visual guide. Truly comprehensive in scope, Art explores masterpieces by more than 700 artists, including Leonardo da Vinci, Picasso, and Van Gogh. An invaluable art lover’s reference book, it showcases everything from Italian baroque painting and African Art to contemporary art history.
Every boy and every girl: Spice (up your life)
