From the December issue: Last-minute books for the holidays

The holidays are just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean that everyone has wrapped their very last presents. For those lagging behind—or perhaps just stocking up for an upcoming birthday or two—inRegister rounded up some of the best regional books perfect for a coffee table or kitchen.

From Asha Gomez’s My Two Souths, a cookbook fusing flavors from the south of India and the southern United States, to Mr. Ken Fulk’s Magical World, a tome with a cover straight off a turn-of-the-century circus ad and filled with photos of the interior designer’s work, someone is bound to enjoy a flip through at least one in our selection.
