    1. The Barnes and Noble art books for $20 bucks or less. Gotta love em! The binding, paper, and plates are all third rate but the art is good stuff Can we say craft projects? I rip these books apart and then use the individual sheets for all manner of awesome things: from scrap booking to decoupage to gift cards. It's also the cheapest way to get kids interested in making their own art books! Fun stuff!

    2. I read this just before our trip to Italy. Helped me have a better appreciation for the great art we were seeing. There is nothing like seeing it in person. Especially the Sistine Chapel.
