While this is unquestionably a terrifically cool set for serious fans and longtime followers (especially stuff like the patches, which according to the content information "MAY" include the exclusive submarine patch).

Travelers, lovers of Italy, and imaginative wanderers will delight in this beautiful collection, which features hand-drawn lettering and a silk-screened cover."

I want this map so badly, as it mixes some things I absolutely love: languages, etymology, and geography. This atlas reveals the original names and meanings of familiar places around the globe, as painstakingly researched by two German cartographers. Whether it's Chicago's original name of "Stink Onion" or, even better, Yucatan -- which translates in Mayan to "I don't understand," this is a work of genius.

Much more than a book of pictures, 100 Days in Photographs is a compelling visual journey through our age—an odyssey that's personal and universal, immediate and timeless. To create it, Getty Images and National Geographic identified 100 days that represent defining moments of the past 150 years, and crystallized them with photographs that leap from the page to evoke joy and anger, triumph and despair. Featuring scores of rare and unpublished photographs uncovered during its creation, this remarkable book provides new perspective on key events and personalities of the past 150 years.

Well that and all of my other favorites. Lartigue was given a camera as a young boy in the late 1800's and he chronicled his life in France in photos until the war began in 1914. It really is The Gilded Age as he shows everything from wild self-built toys, to the innovation of cars to crazy imaginative flying machines. Women on the beach in full dress with umbrellas, and men swimming in pants, waistcoat and jackets. The progression of fashion and drumbeat towards war - all shown through the eyes of a boy with his diminutive camera whose work is so remarkable it rivals anything seen today.
