A Still Life (With Books)

Oh I am completely obsessed with still life painting now.
I have always liked the allegory and stuff but have, to tell the truth, often not responded very well to the objects people paint - how many beautifully painted flowers can one look at before you are utterly bored?
Obviously I have been asleep since the eighteenth century because OMG there is beautiful stuff out there.
Today's still life feature is all about books with beautiful paintings by (in order of appearance) Richard Baker,   Ray Kleinlein, Holly Farrell (of the beautiful shoe fame), Jacob Pfeiffer and Janet Hill.
