books of 2012 Listorama in both the BJP and Photo Eye. I have a bit of a hate love thing with lists,
but this year the love won ( aka I was asked) and so I have a list in
there. Some seriously good books in there with ( based on a true story)
top of the pile just for being so cool. But Billy Monk has the best
pictures and The Present is best of a series, Less Americains has the best art history roots (and is the most provocative), Sasha wins theteenage narrative prize, Lebensmittel has the best pairings, A Possible Life and The Altogether the best page turning/cutting design, Live Through This explodes through the intensity ratings, A Girl and Her Room is the best in the world of interiors.
And just in case you missed it, here is Blake Andrews' Best Books list from last year.
