Ah, Christmas. The perfect time to create a serious wish list of books that one can longingly hope to unwrap under the tree. The following list ignores budgets and all elements of practicality. It's indulgent, ludicrous and features some of the coolest Canadian non-fiction books published in 2012.
Public galleries and art museums throughout Canada publish exceptional books on art. These are some of them. Browse the list or search all of Bookshelf by gallery name, e.g. Vancouver Art Gallery or Art Gallery of Alberta.
