Maybe it’s the scent of old, dusty hardcovers that lures us in, but there’s something inviting about a library. We’re not talking the little one down the street as much as we’re talking about the legendary ones around the world. While this book isn’t a scratch and sniff, meaning you’ll have to look elsewhere for that glorious smell, you can take a visual journey to these far-off libraries when you flip through. Massimo Listri: The World’s Most Beautiful Libraries is the latest Taschen tome that shares stunning images and informative stories of its subject. Visit Alexandria and make stops at Trinity College, Florence, and plenty of more places along the way. At over 660 pages, this coffee table book will take you to all the amazing libraries still accessible around the world. 

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
