By Out.com Editors
Go exploring without leaving your living room with South Pole ($45; Assouline.com), a collection of photos, stories, and diary entries from the hunky adventurers of the 1910–13 British Antarctic Expedition. For more modern journeys, check out James Franco's The Dangerous Book Four Boys ($50; RizzoliUSA.com), a survey of the artwork in his recent exhibition at New York City's Clocktower Gallery. For a clearer picture on collecting art, dealer Michael Findlay's The Value of Art ($29.95; Prestel.com) offers a wealth of knowledge (and gossip) about a life spent in the business of beautiful things. There's a little more whimsy to Jean-Paul Goude ($49.95; ThamesandHudsonUSA.com), a collection of work by the famed ad man, designer, and, of course, Grace Jones baby-daddy.
