Whether it’s your office kris kringle, parents, friend or niece you’re buying for this Christmas, you can never go wrong with a great book!

Thames & Hudson are Australia’s leading publisher of illustrated visual arts books, and we’ve teamed up with them this Christmas to offer TDF readers a special 25% discount! 

This discount is available site-wide on the Thames & Hudson website, but our top picks are of course in the design section. Standouts include MMXX – a survey of the most influential, innovative and exciting Australian architecture over the past 20 years – and Design Lives Here that spotlights contemporary Australian interiors. 

Green thumbs meanwhile will love the lush, local gardens influenced by mid-century modernism on display in Living Outside.

We’d probably purchase Truth Bomb for the incredible cover alone, but the pages filled with inspiring and unfiltered words from groundbreaking female artists are even more impressive.  

Thames & Hudson also publish children’s books, such as the heartwarming This Small Blue Dot by Melbourne author Zeno Sworder.

Finally, if you’re looking for something to sink your teeth into over the holiday period, we recommend Songlinesthe first of a six-book series that offers an introduction to Indigenous knowledge in vital areas.

You could literally finish your Christmas shopping in the next 10 minutes on this one website. Just click on any of the images above to get started! 

Thames & Hudson Christmas Countdown offer:

25% off all products site-wide when you use the discount code TDF25 at the Thames & Hudson online store checkout. Offer ends Sunday December 13, while stocks last.
