The Best-Looking Books to Give This Holiday

Library curator Thatcher Wine of Juniper Books, based in Boulder, Colo., is taking a different approach to end-of-the-year list of best books, which usually focus on literary achievement -- one that might sound a little shallow. Given that, as a curator who assembles book collections for interior designers and private clients, Wine judges books by their covers as much as by the quality of their content, he presents "the best-looking books of the year -- which are also great reads."
