January Magazine's Best of 2007: Art & Culture

January Magazine has posted a list of their top ten favourite arts and culture books of 2007, with Architectural Inspiration: Styles, Details, Sources (The Boston Mills Press) by Richard Skinulis and Peter Christopher at the top of the list. The magazine calls Architectural Inspiration "the ultimate design and wish book. This is the go-to-guide for the homeowner facing rethinking their existing home -- or designing a new one." Also in January's top ten is Shells (Firefly Books) by Paul Starosta and Jacques Senders, "a majestic coffeetable-sized tribute to the beauty of form and function represented by this 'unique and perfect masterpiece of nature.'

As the book points out, shells have fascinated humans since the time of Aristotle and most probably before. And it’s possible that this fascination has never been given a more beautiful and complete literary form than in Shells."

Go to January Magazine for the complete list.
