•  Penguin Drop Cap series, various authors (Penguin, $22) — Penguin has issued a series of collectible classics from A to Z. For the book lover, the series is a nod to the tradition of printing and the distribution of ideas, stories and opinions, ranging from paper to digital media.

• “Building Stories” by Chris Ware (Pantheon, $50) — Chris Ware’s innovative graphic novel completely changes the meaning of the genre by taking it apart. Packaged like a board game, the book is fourteen separate pamphlets, booklets, and fold-out pages that follow a Chicago triplex through their ordinary lives.
