THE 2016 GIFT GUIDES 2016

Holiday Gift Guide 2016: Staff Favorites

Every year there are a few books that we love outside of logic, beyond our control, for personal reasons perhaps not even known to ourselves. Here are 10 books - from monographs on outsiders like Eugene Von Bruenchenhein and Susan Te Kahurangi King, to David Zwriner Books' 1,048-page collection of Donald Judd writings to Gregory R. Miller's revelatory survey of African diasporan art from the Joyner Giuffrida Collection - that our staff will be giving this year.
