Great photography and informative descriptions make for a book that is as beautiful as it is interesting.

Why I read it: a random library find.

This collection of Hollywood portraits from the 1920s through 40s is full of mesmerisingly beautiful black and white images.  Famous actors and actresses, exquisite lighting, glamorous settings–this book is literally a feast for the eyes.

[Why I read it: it caught my eye in the thrift store.]
