From Andrew Zuckerman, the genius photographer behind the stunning Creature, comes Wisdom ($32), a similar hard bound book featuring knowledge and photos of 50 of the world's great writers, actors, artists, designers, politicians, musicians, religious figures, and business leaders of our time. The book comes with an accompanying documentary DVD.
Living in a large city can be overwhelming — people can often feel lost amongst so many, and this feeling is perfectly conveyed in the brilliant photography of Little People in the City ($18). This hardcover tome represents a collection of photographs from street artist Slinkachu, who for the last several years has photographed and then left tiny hand-painted figurines all around London — and has chronicled his work in a terrific blog. A perfect book for your coffee table. [Thanks, Tim]
