Chronicle Books publishes pretty books. And while I'm never one to outwardly admit judging a book by its cover, I am the type to impulse by Paris by Color published by Chronicle Books at Chronicle Books because it's just so pretty.
Chronicle Books in San Francisco has quirky titles like a journal covered with Ryan Gosling's face and famous quote "Hey Girl" and a whole book on newborn puppies. The collections also celebrate the city's attractive attractions: Miette's pastries, Tartine's bread, and the Ferry Building's farmer's market. A visit to this store is to celebrate the pretty and the city.
