Is there anything better than curling up with a good book? Actually, yes: when that book is as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside. I’ve put together my fall reading list—10 books filled with fashion, wanderlust, and of course design that will look equally good whether you’re thumbing through them or decorating your coffee table.

Matisse’s cutouts, menswear fashion, Dior’s haute couture gowns seen through the eyes of the Victoria & Albert Museum—they’re all sure to make this fall/winter season even more stylish and cozy. Oh, and since everyone’s been raving about the New York Times Best Seller Where the Crawdads Sing, I picked up a copy and haven’t been able to put it down since. Happy reading!
