Staff Favorites!

Take a look at the November display of staff favorites!  The Library will be refreshing the display all throughout the month.  A few titles I recommend: 

This beautifully illustrated book includes photos, artwork, and ephemera  from the Wes Anderson films Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Moonrise Kingdom.  The book captures the spirit, charm and aesthetics expected from Wes Anderson.

In fashion, advertising and popular culture, sunglasses are a signifier of cool.  Cool Shades offers a scholarly and engaging history of sunglasses and addresses the many complex meanings of sunglasses.   

Britpop! Follows the rise and fall of the movement from 1994 - 1998.  In contrast to British bands of the eighties, the Brit Pop bands of the mid-nineties embraced the mainstream. This book draws on music journalism and interviews from all of the major bands of the time, like Oasis, Blur, Elastica, and Suede.

The Design of Everyday Things, originally published as The Psychology of Everyday Things, is a fascinating book about smart design.
