We're finishing up the week with a bumper selection of gorgeous gift books. From ABCs to cookery books, via inspiring individuals, amazing animals and surprising stories – something for everyone. As it's Black Friday, there are lots of offers on books in the big stores, but do try to buy at least one book from your local or an independent online book shop – we love Smallprint, Bags of Books and shopping at Hive is a great way to support indies online.
