Very short and sweet, but oh, the book porn!!!

This little gift book is adorable and a must have for all bibliophiles. It contains a few short essays on the joy of reading, lots of gorgeous drawings, prints, and cartoons celebrating the greatness of books, and quite a few quotes from authors and poets on being a bibliophile. All in all it's a small cute book, that will make a great addition to any coffee table, book shelf, or display. I'd love if I could get some of the art bigger and framed around my house, it's that good!… (more)

This slight book has been described as a book of "art" for book lovers. I wouldn't go that far. It's more like a collection of Pinterest memes than art. Some of them I've seen before (so they must be fairly common or well-known, and probably wouldn't be anything new to most 75'ers), and some I'd never heard of. These were mostly pictures, poems, quotations, etc. A very quick read, and nothing particularly memorable. Maybe worth 15 minutes or so.
