Top customer reviews
Arranged chronologically from New Years Day to New Years Eve, and covering 34 holidays in between, the book adds up to a moving portrait of how invested (in all sense of the word) we are are in our celebrations. The writing is incisive, merry and provocative, and the graphic feast served up on every page a celebration in itself. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
Great introduction to business-retail cycles and holiday traditions in general.
Design is also excellent, although those who have limited eyesight might need a magnifying glass. As befits most polished graphic design packages, the text can be a bit small. But the photos are telling enough and overall it's a pleasurable read.
