Holiday Gift Pick #7

Gift Idea #7: East of the Sun and West of the Moon, by Taschen Books ($40)

We recently chatted about Taschen Books' exquisite coffee table collection of Danish artist Kay Nielsen's long-lost illustrations for 1,001 Nights. While that particular book will set you back a full $300, Taschen also offers East of the Sun and West of the Moon, which contains 15 Norse folktales also illustrated by Nielsen. It's nearly as pretty—and a fraction of the price. This hardcover book (with slipcase) features 11 of Nielsen's watercolor originals, as well as numerous full-page illustrations and double-spreads.
