Weekend Special: Silver bells and all that jazz

For those who celebrate Christmas, Happy Christmas Eve! Here are some cool things on the interwebs that have filled my stocking this past week.

♥ I love the artistry of book covers (seriously, check out Chip Kidd, a master of book design). Here is a gallery of the the 10 best book covers of 2011. Do you agree?

♥ And here is the list of EW’s top 25 movie posters of 2011.

♥ Your weekly dose of pretty? Check out these images from the medieval manuscript Liber Floridus (Book of Flowers). You’re welcome.

♥ The townhouse used in Breakfast at Tiffany’s (yep, the film features an uptight reel librarian) is up for sale. Cue oohing and aahing and humming of “Moon River” in 1… 2… 3. Go!

♥ Whether you’re glad or not that Christmas carol season is on its merry way out until next year (I personally loooooove Christmas carols), here’s an interesting essay about the long, strange history of Christmas carols.
