70 Gifts for Book Enthusiasts

From Urban Consumer Escapism Books to Literature Support Mounts

— December 16, 2018 — Social Good
There are plenty of gifts for book enthusiasts out there and this list highlights some unique and artistic products. From cookbooks to coffee table publications, the printed word is always a good option for a holiday present or a stocking stuffer.

For children, books are educational and entertaining. With the onset of technology, the traditional book format has been enhanced to include an interactive element that encourages kids to learn through experience. For example, the Discover Wonders Talking Books is a techy publication that teaches STEM.

For the grown-up book lover, there are many high-end and unique options. One is George Cochrane's modern manuscript of Dante's Inferno. The artist took the book and created an authentic, incredibly precise handwritten, handbound and illustrated version that features archival paper and vegetable tanned Moroccan goatskin.
