Coffee Table Art, considered the staple for the difficult on our Christmas list, has changed over the years and with the internet bookstore finding that perfect tome, a keepsake, a DIY guide, the best images of seven continents has never been easier.

The Coffee Table Art that instantly comes to mind, bulky, over-sized, large block letter printed covers shouting the names of Art History masters "Monet," "Van Gogh," "Picasso," and the more modern "Hopper," "de Kooning" and "Pollack" all neatly stacks at all intersections throughout the mega bookstores.

While these are must have and staples of any home schooled art historian and art collector, The Coffee Table Art Book has evolved over the years.

The Visit: The Origin of "The Night Before Christmas"

Author Mark Kimball Moulton brings to the page the story behind the writing of the holiday classic. Accompanied by more than 50 richly detailed illustrations by Susan Winget, "The Visit: The Origin of The Night Before Christmas," is quickly becoming a holiday favorite and staple in any home holiday library.

Moulton through interviews with Dinghy Sharp, the great-great-granddaughter of Clement Moore, who in 1822 created the classic Christmas poem, "The Night Before Christmas," for his daughter, the origins of which were passed down through the generations of the Moore Family are now on the pages in a beautifully luxuriously bound hard cover.

From the publisher's description: Not only does the story of the beautiful and enduring poem's creation unfold in this tale, but many of the terms and actions of the characters in "The Night Before Christmas" are explained, including why stockings were hung, why windows were shuttered, what coursers were, and what exactly sugarplums that danced through children's heads really were.

Perhaps most moving, is Moore's motivation and inspiration for the creation of the poem. This lovely edition is a natural companion to "The Night Before Christmas."

Sized in landscape printing, the natural accompaniment to the holiday favorite told the world over is available through Schiffer Publishing for $16.99.
