Inspirational book for a future entomologist (with a spider focus) ?

User Rating: / 0
A good and terribly brilliant friend is currently a college freshman with a life-long enthusiasm for the insect world, and an eye toward a career in entomology. Her passion: spiders. I'd like to find a book on spiders (or on the greater world of insects) for her as a Christmas gift, something special. ...I'm not sure if it should be something with a scientific focus, a text that she could reference for years, or a coffee-table type book with beautiful photos of individuals of the order Araneae (ie, spiders). I'm leaning towards the latter.

Any suggestions? (... and other gift ideas revolving around the insect world are also welcome, although I really want to get her a book first and foremost)
