  • Atlas Maior

    Atlas-maior

    You can’t even wrench the laminated Streetwise map away from him, so you know he’ll love this. Prepare yourself for weeks of, “Honey, come check this out!” First published in 1665, Atlas Maior was created by renowned cartographer Joan Blaeu, and is considered the most comprehensive baroque atlas. It covers Arctica, Europe, Africa, Asia, and America, and stands as a master work in mapmaking. This hardcover copy was created from the National Library of Vienna’s complete, colored, gold-heightened copy, and features an introduction by Peter van der Krogt that offers in-depth descriptions of the maps.

  • Loretta Lux

    Loretta-lux

    Loretta Lux makes slightly magic portraits of children by combining painting, photography, and digital images. Her work makes me feel quiet, like one of the photos is about to whisper something to me. Lovely.

    Bacon-of-the-month-club

  • Travel Scrabble

    Travel-scrabble

    We went camping recently, and friends brought along this handy travel-Scrabble game, so we could play by the campfire. The tiles snap into their racks, and the ridges on the board are deeper, so you can even play while you’re in transit. Plus, it’s itty bitty, so you can slip it right into your backpack and still have room for the Scrabble Dictionary. Nerd.
