The album jacket was the first thing we thought of when the digital era began. Without a hard copy of a record, where would we get the artist-defining visuals? Luckily—and maybe partially because of this—vinyl is experiencing a renaissance. Tachen’s latest is a celebration of great album art, of the designs that helped define some of the most iconic artists of all time. But this isn’t just about the sleeves these records came in; it’s about the albums themselves, which also served as an important canvas. Pink Floyd. Michael Jackson. Bon Jovi. So many influential artists used album art as a means to help convey a feeling, and 500 of them are profiled in this book. If you have a music buff on your list, this will go over well this holiday.

Gerber-Pocket-Square-Linerlock-1_1024x1024

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
