I am finding it hard to articulate my sheer delight at the existence of this fine tome-- Encyclopedia of Exquisite by one Jessica Kerwin Jenkins so I shall allow the lovely Ms. Kerwin Jenkins to do so:

Each of the Encyclopedia's 100 entries points to a different way to be happy, whether that means wearing a top hat, eating a luscious pear, luxuriating in a bath full of warm milk, or keeping a singing cricket as a pet. 

A perfect gift for a lady, an ephemera addict, history buff, design enthusiast or the like.  I can not wait to open my copy up on Christmas morning hint, hint...

OH WOW. How lovely. I am sure it's absolutely gorgeous inside. I need to get my patootie over to a B & N to check it out.

Oh, this is exactly what I want!

Would make a nice pair with: Pictorial Webster's: A Visual Dictionary of Curiosities, which you wrote about earlier.
