Joy to the world!  Holiday round-ups featuring the top coffee-table books of 2011 are hitting newspapers across the country and MANDA titles are on fire!  I love this time of year, not only is it satisfying as a publicist to see books I've laboured over all season get star treatment in all their glossy glory, but it is a reminder to all of us in the business that the beauty and craftsmanship of printed, illustrated books is still appreciated and celebrated.  Who wouldn't covet an oversized gorgeous tome on their coffee-table?  If you're looking for gift ideas for near and dears, search no further.  Click on the links below for full listings of the best gift books of the year from The Globe and Mail the Winnipeg Free Press, and the National Post.
