Come for Syd Mead's Xmas card, stay for the great art books at Stuart Ng's store

It's always fun to peruse the wonderful selection of fine art, illustration, and comic book offerings at Stuart Ng Books. Their shelves are bulging with rare and out-of-print books, limited edition artist sketchbooks, and lots of imports.

I'm jealous of those near Torrance, California, who can look in person, but the website is also full of treasures… and not just books.

And if you're shopping early for next Christmas presents, any fan of Syd Mead would love his out-of-print DVD instructional course on gouache rendering.
