Christmas books

What would Christmas be without a big pile of books to keep you going through the long, dark days of January! Richard and I went to Waterstones together to choose presents for each other, so this way we are sure of getting things we like as we hint heavily at our favourites! I have this lovely Art Deco book of postcards, with plenty of images to look at, and even at the back a section of postcards to detach and send.

I really like this book about American Christmas cards. It has some nice pictures and some text about the history of cards in America.

At last, something I didn't know I wanted, but I really did-a colouring book for artists! some beautiful pages for me to fill with watercolours!
