I'd Rather Be Reading : A Library of Art for Book Lovers

Author(s): Guinevere De La Mare

Non-Fiction

I'd Rather Be Reading is a visual love letter to all things bookish. It features beautiful art, photography, and illustrations depicting the pleasures of books - from the likes of Jane Mount, Lisa Congdon, Julia Rothman, and Sophie Blackall - interwoven with poems, quotations, and aphorisms, as well as essays from writer Maura Kelly, bestselling author Gretchen Rubin, and award-winning author and independent bookstore owner Ann Patchett. A cheerful homage to the particular pleasure of getting lost in a good book, I'd Rather Be Reading is an irresistible impulse-purchase for bookstore browsers, and the perfect gift for the bibliophile on everyone's list.
