2013 LDV Gift Guide: For the Bibliophile + A Giveaway

I really don’t collect too many things, unless you count stacks upon stacks of beautiful books on design, fashion, travel, and style icons. I love reading my beloved books and turning to them for inspiration. A beautiful coffee table book is at the top of my list of favorite gifts to give and receive, so I thought it would be great to kick off this year’s “LDV Holiday Gift Guides” with a round-up of fabulous books! Naturally, a good portion of the list is made up of design books—I’ve chosen my favorite titles of the year from tastemakers like Aerin Lauder, Tom Scheerer, and Suzanne Kasler; Jennifer Boles’ fun encyclopedia of timeless decor; along with tributes to icons of style like the aura of Beverly Hills and fashion giants Giancarlo Giammetti, Vogue, Diana Vreeland, and Coco Chanel; several fascinating books for the stylish man in your life, and a couple of great options for the hostess.
In addition, I’ve partnered with Graphic Image to give away a beautiful leather-bound Vogue Covers book to one lucky reader . Full details appear at the end of this post.Snip20131110_13
