Gift Guide: Literary Lady

1. Ideal Bookshelf Ideal Bookshelf 413: Jane Austin ($34): “There are so many beautiful editions of Jane Austen’s books that I decided to paint three different sets. You can choose the one you like, or hang all three together if you’re a die-hard fan. This one is warm and happy.”
2. Jonathan Adler Junior Ceramic Dachshund Bookends ($150): “Dachshunds that will always sit, stay, and add some flair to Junior’s bookshelf. Animals simplified into their essential forms accented with a layer of bold geometric pattern. Jonathan Adler pottery begins its life in our Soho studio, where Jonathan and his team design and sculpt every prototype. The product you are viewing is produced by skilled artisans at our main workshop in Peru. They make molds from our prototypes and then hand craft each piece from high-fired stoneware or porcelain. Our Peruvian workshop was found through Aid to Artisans, a non-profit organization that connects designers in America with artisans in developing countries to promote fair trade.”
