If you enjoy crafts, or needlework, or if DIY is the way you make improvements at home, we have a special selection of books for you. Hobbies and How To books are in the spotlight this week. This category of books includes: crafts, needlework, home improvement, decorating, collectibles and antiques, and more. There are many wonderful books in this collection but I’d like to mention a few that I think are particularly noteworthy. First, there are many lovely knitting and quilting books – these are books with great patterns, techniques and ideas, lots of great projects for the cold winter months ahead. Also, for those of you interested in collectibles and antiques, there is The Smithsonian Illustrated Library of Antiques, this set (books sold individually) contains volumes on antique toys and games, oriental rugs, pottery, enamel, boxes and more, there are fifteen volumes in all.
Also in the spotlight: Music, Military History, and Civil War
