Holiday Bookstore Sale
Need a last-minute gift idea? Consider one of the Gallery’s publications, all of which are now 10% off, just in time for the holidays. In Family in the Picture, renowned photographer Lee Friedlander takes the viewer through intimate private moments of his own family, framed by his profound eye. Dana Jennings of the New York Times noted that “the family photo album can’t help becoming a work of art … What a fine gift for [Friedlander’s] family—and for us.” For the more classically inclined, there’s The Young Velazquez: “The Education of the Virgin” Restored, a chronicle of the title painting’s extraordinary journey from abandoned object to treasured masterpiece. The bookworms in your life will enjoy Odd Volumes: Book Art from the Allan Chasanoff Collection, a gift that will impress even your most well-read friends. This lavishly illustrated catalogue features over 100 objects, exploring the transformation of books into sculpture, and is bound in a design as innovative as the works inside. And to please nature-lovers, pick up Edward Ranney’s The Lines, which PhotoEye called “a body of photographs that is admired by and useful to both artists and scientists and all the lay people in between.” Find these and other great gifts at the Gallery’s Bookstore Sale onsite or online today. Offer valid through January 2.
