Peanut Press Gift Guide

Photobooks are the best holiday present!  Peanut Press has a title for everyone on your list:

For your sister in law who won't buy tabloids because they're exploitative but reads them in the supermarket checkout aisle, and who loved Ewan MacGregor ever since Trainspotting, get Victoria Will's "Borne Back, which features tintypes of celebrities at the Sundance Film Festival. If she typically tries to out buy you at the holidays, get a limited edition featuring Flea or Anne Hathaway.  That will show her.


For your friend who is in to photography, and appreciates an intimate story of a family, or your partner who stays home and raises your kids, get Ashly Stohl's "Days & Years," featuring the ups and downs of a photographer's family.  This book will tell your partner that you see them and understand how much they do for your family.  And if you really screwed up this week, get them a limited edition.  Trust us.  

For your father who doesn't read your facebook posts because you use "too many words" and still says stuff like "pocketbook" and "cockaroach," Give him David Carol's "NO PLAN B".  There aren't a lot of words, but the pictures are full of Carol's signature wit.  If dad is getting on in years, get him a limited edition, because if you're gonna get his love and approval, you better do it now.  Time's running out.

Your brother in law already bought tickets for the first showing of the new and final Star Wars movie, and spent all last Thanksgiving explaining to your kids why episodes, 1, 2 and 3 of the Star Wars Franchise are invalid and should be rewritten, and even though he made your son cry, you are still grateful to him, because it's true, and someone had to tell them, but it wasn't going to be you. Get him a Limited Edition of Ashly Stohl's sold out "Charth Vader." The limited edition comes with a print, and is the perfect way of saying, "thanks for taking one for the team, bro.  You can still babysit even though you made them cry.  How about this Friday?"

For your college roommate who moved to Boston for a guy, and is starting to talk like it, but you're not gonna say anything yet, because you know it's not going to last, get Paris Visone's For Real.  It's a great tale of a music photographer's life at home, and backstage on the road with bands.  You can get her a limited edition, since you didn't send her anything last year.  We know you still feel bad about it.

For the David Carol fan in your life, get the David Carol Boxed Set.  It includes every book he has published, a signed poster, a David Carol disguise kit, and other fun stuff.  Remember, it's not creepy if everyone is having a good time!


Happy holidays everyone!  Orders placed by December 19 should arrive by December 24.
