PHOTO GEAR

Gifts for those who love to shoot.

Leica M10

If money is no object, there’s no
greater joy than shooting with Leica’s
latest M10 rangefinder camera.
CAMERA $6,499
I extensively tested the Leica M in the Arctic, Latin America and all over Europe —
it even survived a motorcycle crash. It truly stands up to its reputation

BOOKS

I had a ton of books I loved in 2017, but these make the best gifts and have my highest recommendation. They tend to sell out quickly!

Folio Society Dune

GUIDE - $19

Dune has always been one of my favorite books, but the Folio Edition is so gorgeous it is essentail even for those that have read it a dozen times (like me).

Chaos: Making A New Science

GUIDE - $19

A fascinating read, even much later. For lovers of science, arts, and all fields in between, in a startlingly beautiful Folio Edition.

The Amazon TV show is nice, but this Folio Society edition of Dick's great piece is a stunning book to have on your shelves.

The Art Of Blade Runner

GUIDE - $19

Speaking of Blade Runner, Blade Runner 2049's art book has mediocre book design but stunning, unskippable content.

GUIDE - $19

A gorgeous photo book for lovers of the art of photography.

Mondo is a defining institution when it comes to pop culture art. I own several of their immensely gorgeous artist posters, but this compendium is hard to beat.
