A Wishlist of Books!

I have never been much of a heavy-duty novel reader, but I am always down for a good development, lifestyle, or craft book! Since most of these are published by Chronicle Book's, I am thinking I am in love with a new publishing company. I would love to stock my studio room with these droll-over beauties:

"An Encyclopedia of Forgotten-Yet-Delightful, Chic, Useful, Curious, and Otherwise Commendable Things from Times Gone By."

"Certain to inspire, this book from Nylon magazine features inventive street style from all over the world. Perfect for the fashion lover in your life, with blurbs about each photo and high quality heavier stock pages – perfect for flipping through again and again!"

"100 Artists Play a Collaborative Game"

The Good, The Bad, and the Barbie
"How to wear unique pieces and where to snag the best vintage in every state."

"Absolutely Everything You Need to Know"
"How to Design and Produce Your Own Book" 

"Fabulous Looks, Beauty Essentials, and Life Lessons for Loving Your Teens and Twenties"

"25 Charming Gifts, Accents, and Accessories to Make from Paper"

"The art of making a living in a cubicle without losing the passion to create"

"A rolling pin, a robot, a pickle, a water tower, a hammock, a wasp, a safety pin, a kiss"

"This highly visual compendium showcases the best, most thought provoking, and downright weirdest fanzines ever produced"


  1. Oooh, I'm with you on the non-novel kinds of books.... I'm a sucker for field guides, too! (Nerd) Haha!

    These all look awesome! I've been eyeing a few of these up whenever I go to Borders....


  2. Born Again Vintage is great! I'm loving the list and your blog. Keen stuff!


  3. The Artist in the Office is such a great book!
