Noir for the Holidays

noir_a-z

If you’re looking for a little noir gift, The Noir A-Z by Julian Hibbard hits that dark spot perfectly. Brit-photographer Hibbard’s cinematic photos make this alphabet book a  rare treat for adults. Some of the images are darkly humorous, such as the one below illustrating the letter E  “for Equivocal”—a nurse with pruning shears. Others surprise or startle, while all invite the viewer to imagine a before and after. And with 26 letters the potential stories are infinite.

Beautifully produced by the publisher Mark Batty, the book is casebound in boards which adds to the pleasure and suspense when turning a page.
