if  your idea of  fun  is staying  at home and cocooning , you might consider reading a book from the collection of  BENAKI MUSEUM. We have seen some that we personally liked a lot, … here they are:
in praiseIn Praise of Shadows: based on a very interesting exhibition at the new Benaki Museum in spring 2009

Mavroi-polemistesNatalia Mela: again a book that follows an exhibition  we found amazing. One of the most talented modern sculptors in Greece toda, Natalia Mela will make you see everyday objects under a new perspective.

As well as books, we found one CD ROM/PC  in Greek: The hidden treasure of  Benaki Museum

and a DVD ROM in English: Greece at the Museum Benaki.

Finally, a book for children: Ghika by Niki Psarrakis-Belessiotis and Maria -Christina Destounis.
Something we found very original and beautiful are masks that have the form of the traditional headbands of  Epirus, Corfu and Asia Minor.

You don’t have to enjoy these books on your own, you can also offer them to your friends, since they are paperbacks or hardbacks,  luxurious editions and make beautiful presents.
