Embellished: New Vintage
(Hardback)
Karen Nicol
 
This is a very new book, but already one of my favourites. Karen’s distinguished career has included working with designers, exhibiting her own textile art and teaching students. In this very modern and stylish book, she explains how thrifted finds and ancient sewing and embroidery techniques inform her work. It’s a stylish guide to the power and possibilities of textiles and has made me excited about sewing all over again.

The Hound of the Baskervilles
(Paperback)
Arthur Conan Doyle
 
'The Hound of the Baskervilles' is the story of the curse of the Baskervilles and the immense hound roaming Dartmoor, the presage of death. This favourite novel brilliantly uses the vast and mysterious moor to heighten the suspense. The storytelling never falters and the horror and mystery of the hound has enthralled generations after generations.

The Ingmar Bergman Archives
(Books & other media combined)
Paul Duncan; Bengt Wanselius; Erland...
 
Second in line from the better-selling Stanley Kubrick Archives, I actually prefer this volume because the filmmaker's life's work is so much messier, complicated, unstrung and confusing -- while his art is just as precise and masterful. Why Taschen decided to stick with the Kubrickian cover lettering is a little confusing, though easily overlooked for the treasure trove of material within, which

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of...
(Paperback)
J. K. Rowling
For me, this is the book where the Harry Potter series really took flight. There’s a confidence at work here that lifts the story, which is far darker and more ambitious than in the first two books in the series. The characters are familiar by now, and Rowling puts them through the emotional ringer as she deftly deals with time travel, escaped prisoners and the history of the terrible events at the heart of her story. It’s a beautiful novel that stands alone while also setting up the rest of the series, and a huge achievement.

Ripley Bogle
(Paperback)
Robert McLiam Wilson
 
Another novel I remember reading on a bus. I consumed Robert McLiam Wilson’s debut in the four-and-a-half crampedl hours it took to travel from Donegal to Dublin. RTE 2FM’s Gerry Ryan was blaring on the radio, but Ryan’s loud and lascivious tongue was easily licked by Ripley Bogle. McLiam Wilson’s novel was a revelation: an updating of Joyce by way of Knut Hamson’s Hunger set on the streets of London. His sentences are bombastic and full of music, while Bogle is waggish and satirical — a discursive dropout wandering as a tramp around London. Looking back, his faux nihilism seems very adolescent, but I guess that was the point — we were all there, weren’t we? McLiam Wilson has been quiet a long time; I hope he returns.

The Alienist
(Paperback)
Caleb Carr
 
Oh, the suspense! The Alienest by Caleb Carr is set in steamy and corrupt 1890s New York at a time when police investigations were beginning to make use of psychological research and new technologies. The nature of tackling crime is changing, and some proper analysis is required of the team on the case. This book is clever and absolutely compelling.

Great Northern Brotherhood of ...
(Hardback)
Seth
 
Whenever I think I'm trying hard at what I do, I think of Seth and realized that I'm not. Usually devoting himself to somber works of graphic fiction, this extremely fun book mixes his memories and research into real cartoonists with complete nonsense, all revolving around a fictional fraternal order with a distinctly Canadian (and British) tone of camaraderie, gentlemanly competition and arcane knowledge, all somehow coming out strangely moving and warmhearted, not unlike the artist himself.
