Cool Gift: John Varvatos + Epic Ink’s Guitar-Themed Books

Designer John Varvatos has partnered with Epic Ink to create a new series of books, each offering detailed information and imagery of a guitar used by a legendary musician. Instruments owned by Keith Richards, Eric Clapton and Billy Gibbons are among those featured. Clever packaging, which includes a custom leather case, a certificate of authentication and a hand-numbered vellum title page, almost makes up for each book’s $1,500 price tag; only 1,500 copies will be released.

Stay tuned for our upcoming Holiday Gift Giving report, which will highlight more choice selections.
