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 info@​abookofjews.​com for more information.
