For the budding architect in your family, or simply someone with a fascination with buildings comes Popville by Anouck Boisrobert, Louis Rigaud and Joy Sorman.
It's the development of a city in book form, with each page of the pop-up book corresponding to a moment of the city's development. Some urban and landscape elements remain constant references for the growth of the city, while others just disappear and make place to new ones.
For lovers of buildings, it's got 'Christmas gift' written all over it. Price? £15.
