Xmas Pressie inspiration
And just in case you need some Christmas pressie inspiration, here are some ideas that may be just the ticket for those you’re buying for!
Jumping Cats Calendar – so popular last year and one for all those cat lovers out there. It really is pictures of cats, jumping off high places. Taking the loose form of a calendar, it can be used (and re-used) for any year. For those fashion-conscious friends, why not get them a copy of The Vulgar: Fashion Redefined? This was a comprehensive book published alongside a show at The Barbican Centre in 2016/17. Not really their bag? Then there’s also the ever-popular Grayson Perry title, Grayson Perry: The Vanity of Small Differences that never seems to disappoint his wide reaching audience, and continues to sell and sell.
Edith Walks: A Film by Andrew Kötting is a recommendation that is very close to our hearts, and links to our very own ‘home’ here in Manchester, the arts centre where we are now based. This title is a HOME Artist Film, and is the second film that HOME has produced with this talented filmmaker. The Guardian voted it one of the best films of Summer 2017. Definitely worth a watch, then! Also from the same HOME stable is their collection of short stores – Transactions of Desire: Volume 1. If you have friends or family that like to read books on relationships, failed relationships, unrequited love and lust, then this one is for you.
Playful friends? Maybe you want to treat yourself to a special game of ‘fishes’. If so, have a look at this beauty –Emil Nolde: Pairs Flowers. These Nolde paintings turned into matching cards just drip with colour and vitality. Or maybe there is a budding ‘culinary artist’ in your family group? Take a look at this special cook book by artist Mina Stone – Cooking for Artists: Mina Stone. Or are there any budding architects amongst you? Yes? No? Either way our final recommendation has to be our top selling set of playing cards, that make a really excellent stocking-filler. They are also a very informative collection for all those architectural knowledge nerds out there – Play Architecture: Playing Cards.
