Just got wind of a gorgeous book published in the UK several years ago: A Book of Jews. A book of, well…Jews. Specifically, photographs of Jews. It’s filled with good Jews and bad Jews – popstars, politicians, serial killers, gangsters, movie stars, scientists…and so forth. Unfortunately, the book has yet to make its U.S. debut, but we can cross our fingers that something is in the works to bring these photographs across the pond. Meanwhile, you can visit the book’s website here, browse through some of the stunning photographs (and clean layout!) here, and if you have a few pounds to spare, you can even buy the book here*.
*Looks like the book is available in DOLLARS too… $495/copy, including courier delivery from the UK. This takes normally 5 – 7 days from receipt of order & payment. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
