Patti Smith – writer, performer and visual artist – takes us on a journey in her new book Year of the Monkey.  From California to the Arizona Desert, from a Kentucky farm to the hospital room of a mentor, Smith melds the western landscape with her own dreamscape in a haunting poetic blend of fact and fiction.  Year of the Monkey is available here at House Of Books.

Considering the recent destruction in the Amazon Rain Forest and the loss of countless animals and plants, we are fortunate to have Joel Sartore’s exquisite book The Photo Ark – One Man’s Quest To Document The World’s Animals.  Joel Sartore is a photographer, author, teacher, conservationist and regular contributor to National Geographic magazine. Mr. Sartore has photographed more than 6,000 species for this exquisite book.  It’s impossible to resist looking closely at each photo.  “If you look closely enough a tortoise is as magnificent as a tiger.” – Joel Sartore.  The Photo Ark and the Photo Ark Calendar are available here at House of Books.
