While there are many ways to become a mother, art and nature mingle in this celebration of gestation—where each month, phase, and trimester of pregnancy is depicted through immersive watercolor spreads. Unlike anything you’ve seen before, this joyous book is worth savoring and paying particular attention to the negative space. And yes, it would make a splendid keepsake gift for any expectant mother.
