FOR POP-ART PUNK ENTHUSIASTS

Pettibon

“I have a genuine empathy and admiration for what I’m examining – definitely the ’60s.”
-Raymond Pettibon

Raymond Pettibon got his start as an artist producing crude drawings for punk album covers and concert flyers (his brother was a founding member of L.A.’s Black Flag), and has since gone on to become one of the most celebrated painters of his generation. This new massive tome explores Pettibon’s eclectic subjects – check out his drawings of surfers and baseball players – and includes interviews with the artist. It’s the perfect book for a punk aficionado to get lost in.

FOR GIRLS WHO RULE THE WORLD

Days Are Gone, Haim

“Never thought that I would grow so old of seeing the gold / Still I never want it to go / I would hold it up to my cold heart / Feel the way it used to start up”
-From “Don’t Save Me” by Haim

What better gift for the seriously stylish sisters in your life than an album put out earlier this year by a band of three Los Angeles sisters who’ve gained a massive following among bands as diverse as The Strokes, Florence and The Machine, The Magnetic Fields and Ke$ha. In June, Haim played The Gastonbury Festival. In the fall, the BBC ranked them at the top of “The Sounds of 2013” poll. In November, they headlined Saturday Night Live. This December we predict plenty of their records wrapped under trees and spinning well into dawn on New Year’s Eve.

FOR ARTISANAL EVERYTHING OBSESSIVES

Ceramics by Workaday Handmade

“Workaday products reference the functionality and routine of work—that’s where they came from, but I also want them to turn that banality on it’s head: to feel free and expressive and exciting.”
-Workaday artist Forrest Lewinger

From quirky “Scribble Cups” to a bold “Yves Klein Blue Vase,” these utilitarian pieces fuse modern shapes with romantic patterns and are handcrafted by conceptual artist and musician Forrest Lewinger in Brooklyn. While working a dayjob at a New York City ceramics studio, Lewinger committed himself to a ritual of creating a piece of his own design each day, hence the project’s name. Ever since Lewinger officially launched Workaday this summer at the Brooklyn Flea, his signature bowls and vases have been scooped by New York City boutiques and fashion world editors, not to mention several Japanese design stores.
