1. Bestow et al. Curations
Bestow et al. Curations are 5x7" fine art prints paired with hand poured candles. Featured artist is Norton Wisdom. There are 4 different images to choose from: Fire, Water Earth, and Air.

2. Leap Before You Look Black Mountain College 1933-1957
This is the catalogue from one of the best art shows I saw this year at the Hammer Museum in LA. Black Mountain College played a significant role in the movement of avant-garde art, music, dance and poetry. Bestow et al co-founders couldn’t get enough of this exhibit that was at the Hammer Museum. We went back several times to see this show. This book is a must for art lovers!
3. Colorwheel Umbrella
I just love this color-wheel umbrella and so will your art love. Hope it rains in LA!
4. Raymond Pettibon: Surfers 1985-2015
The works featured in this book are mainly huge chaotic waves and surfers and bits of the artist’s poetry. “ The themes of solitary contemplation and the poetry of nature are ever present in these sweeping waves”. Bestow et al. is inspired by Venice California and it’s surf culture. Foreword by Adam Lindemann. Text by Carlo McCormick. This book should be on everyone’s shelf.
5. Guerilla Girls Handkerchief
What can I say? A must for your feminist art lover. (Bestow et al. is founded by 4 women).
6. Faber-Castell Brush Pens
I was only going to list five, BUT had to add this. Bestow et al. uses these pens. The art pens are perfect to draw, sketch or just make your “to do” list.
Happy Holidays & here’s to artful gifting !
