My brother is going to be 50 soon, and I had been thinking about a birthday present. Having come up with no bright ideas I gave up: I called him today and asked what he would like. He said that a Kandinsky album would be something he'd like to have. After reviewing what's available I picked the one that had the most color illustrations. The authors are German, so hopefully it was printed in Germany: the fidelity of color images is usually better in the books printed there, and my brother, being an amateur painter himself, is very sensitive to the true reproduction of colors.
I had the book gift-wrapped and shipped directly to my brother. Thanks Jeff Bezos for Amazon.com!
