Cibi Home-style Japanese cooking Meg Tanaka and Zenta Tanaka

DRAF T

C OV E R

CIBI ('a little one') is a book on home-style Japanese cooking inspired by the eponymous Melbourne café and design space created by Meg and Zenta Tanaka. It contains 80 seasonally relevant recipes across vegetables, fish and seafood, meat, grains and noodles, and sweets, plus small features on elements of Japanese cooking and food culture, accompanied by beautiful photography and illustrations. The recipes, many designed for sharing, strongly reflect Meg and Zenta's ethos – a fresh approach to simplicity using quality produce. CIBI incorporates elements of Japanese design culture and glimpses of their young family's worlds in Collingwood, Tokyo, and Meg’s birthplace, Okayama, alongside snapshots (in words and pictures) of the CIBI-feel: an enjoyment of food, community and sharing. 

Author Details CIBI is the love and life of Meg and Zenta Tanaka. After meeting at university in Adelaide and spending time travelling in Europe, they established CIBI ('a little one') in Melbourne more than 11 years ago as an expression of their way of living, their desire to create a space for people to enjoy and feel at home in, and to blend their backgrounds and experience in food, wine, design and architecture. At CIBI, Japanese sensibilities and their evolving Australian lifestyles are combined to create a community, driven by the key elements of head, hands and heart: a warm and welcoming space that marries simple, good food with sophisticated design to enrich the lives of customers, friends and family and to provide a sense of joy and happiness.

DRAF T

C OV E R

Hailed as Australia's Willy Wonka, Darren Purchese is renowned for his stunning high-end dessert creations. Known as the chef with the tricks, with a scientific approach to food and ingredients, in Lamingtons & Lemon Tart, he turns his eye to the classics, cast with his trademark flair for the home cook who might be ambitious, but also wants to feel that the recipes are within their grasp – and that ingredients can be sourced with ease. Alongside this line-up of classics, he includes a selection of his favorite modern creations, from Caramelized white chocolate mousse to Explosive raspberry wagon wheels; Lemon meringue pie éclair; Canneles; Passionfruit clouds; and his big-selling Popcorn and honeycomb rubble. And, for the breakfast fans, Darren's winning Granola, his take on American pancakes, and the decadent Brioche French toast with cinnamon ice cream.

Recipes are divided across eight chapters (cakes, choux pastry, desserts, snacks, tarts, breakfast, confectionary and frozen dessert), while Darren also takes readers through the basics of what he considers to be “sweet essentials”, including batters, confectionary, caramel, pastry, meringues, jellies, and chocolate garnish. Complete with stunning, pared back photography, this package will set itself apart as the next big baker's must-haves.

Author Details British-born pastry chef Darren Purchese has won a loyal, enviable following over five years with his Sweet Studio Burch & Purchese, on Chapel Street in Melbourne. Together with wife Cath Claringbold, he has built a reputation for stunning feats of sugary deliciousness combining jellies, sponges, mousses, cream, crumbles and spreads. Many creations are works of art as much as they are a birthday cake or celebration dessert. Darren has played a prominent role on MasterChef over successive years (he was responsible for the passionflower pressure test, one of the highest rating episodes in 2015), and is lined up to do so again in 2016. He is looking at opportunities to give his brand a retail presence in Brisbane, he had a cameo role in Neighbours in October 2015, and he created the wedding cake and dessert for good mate Storm Uechtritz’s wedding to Boyzone singer Ronan Keating recently, where he was also a guest.

ADVANCE INFORMATION

Darren Purchese has a national profile, courtesy of his now 5-year-old Sweet's Studio on Chapel Street in Melbourne, celebrity links (Danni Minogue is a big fan and shares this regularly with her Instagram followers; he flew to the UK to do the desserts for Ronan Keating's wedding) and his role on MasterChef, where he is a regular guest.

• C OV E R

The book presents desserts and sweets ideas for home cooks who are ambitious without being over-the-top/unattainable.

It plays to people's love of sentimental/old-time favourites (for example, pavolva, lamington, Swiss Roll).

It shares some of Darren's signature favourites (exploding raspberry wagon wheel, for example).

Author Details Pana Barbounis founded Pana Chocolate in Melbourne three years ago. A child of Greek migrant parents who did not have a lot of money, he always believed if he was self employed, he would be more prosperous. Pana also decided, in his 30s, that in the next phase of his life, he would do things his way. This desire – after many years working in food and catering – led to his discovery of raw chocolate. He developed his products and worked on them for six months, including training in the UK and visits to Belgium, where he worked with traditional chocolatiers. He learnt a lot about individual ingredients, before creating his range that now dominates the raw food space; Pana Chocolate is vegan, organic and refined-sugar free. He started out in 2013 selling $600 worth of chocolate a month – and delivering it from the back of his scooter – but very quickly brought on a distributor. His chocolate is now sold by 3000 stockists around the world (1900 in Australia), plus he has stores in Richmond, Melbourne, and Alexandria, Sydney. The business's turnover exceeds $5 million a year. The chocolate is all made and packaged in his Richmond warehouse, behind the Melbourne shop on Church Street. To give a sense of overseas spread, Pana Chocolate is sold by 40 stores in Iceland, France was the company's biggest international market in 2015, Wholefoods stock it in the UK, and it is sold on both the east and west coast of the US, too. Pana's ambition is for Pana Chocolate to be the number one raw chocolate company in the world.

Key Information • • • •

Raw chocolate is gaining in popularity as part of the veganism trend. Over 70 ideas for sweet treats that are free from dairy, gluten and refined sugar. Pana Chocolate currently has 3000 stockists in 19 countries, primarily in Australia. The book has a slick, standout aesthetic in line with its ethos, and this will set it quite apart from many vegan dessert books on the market.

Barcelona Precincts A Curated Guide to the City's Best Shops, Eateries, Bars and Other Hangouts

C OV E R

Ben Holbrook

DRAF T

Barcelona is a vibrant Mediterranean metropolis of immense cultural pride and heritage. From Picasso to Hemingway, Gaudi to Dali, this sun-struck city has played muse to many great creators in the past, yet its thriving contemporary arts scene continues to deliver a cavalier sense of progress and innovation. It’s this contrast of new and old that enraptures all who visit, and inspires so many to also move here.

Fashion-forward boutiques and independent ateliers rest side by side with design emporiums. Gastronomy plays a major role in the city, and you'll find everything from trendy brunch spots and Michelin-starred marvels to traditional tapas restaurants serving rustic mountain fare and seafood. Catalonia’s ten official wine regions also ensure Barcelona is constantly brimming with tempting wine bars and bodegas, while the booming craft beer scene will rouse even the most hardcore of hopheads. Then, of course, there’s the 5-kilometre stretch of glorious city beaches, where you can take a gentle stroll along the boardwalk, stopping for cocktails and tapas at one of the sandy ‘chiringuitos’ (beach bars). Barcelona Precincts offers a curated list of the very best places to shop, eat and drink in Barcelona’s 12 hottest precincts, including Born, Raval, the Gothic quarter, Eixample and the old fishermen's quarter of Barceloneta. A 'While You're Here' section also covers major sights and attractions in each precinct. Maps make this book a handy and useful guidebook, while the stunning design and imagery creates a beautiful keepsake.

Author Details British travel writer and blogger Ben Holbrook moved to Barcelona from his native Wales in 2009 with the intention of staying for a year. But after discovering the joys of Spanish food and wine, he succumbed to the city’s allure and has no plans to leave. As the son of two travel agents, Ben was a born bon vivant, and has always relished the sense of novelty and adventure that travel provides. Ben contributes to a number of global travel publications and writes luxury hotel reviews for The Telegraph in the UK. He also shares his passion for travel and gastronomy on his popular blog, DriftwoodJournals.com.

Meghan Markle, the star of the long-running TV show Suits , is set to refashion the House of Windsor. Her marriage to Prince Harry in May at Windsor Castle is already the most anticipated event of 2018. The warmth and affection Meghan and Harry displayed during their engagement interview is light years away from the stilted 'whatever love means' conversation with Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981. In Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, #1 New York Times bestselling author Andrew Morton tells her compelling story and places her life in context with other American women who have had a dramatic impact on royalty as she forges her way as a truly modern princess.

The dramatic and fascinating story of her family lineage, with a branch from the royal bloodline. The challenges of being bi-racial at the Catholic school she attended growing up. Meghan’s thwarted ambitions and rise to stardom, including her stint as a “suitcase girl” on Deal or No Deal. Her fractured love life — a failed marriage to a fellow actor and the celebrity chef she left him for. The blind date that led to her destiny...

Meghan Markle, the girl from Woodland Hills, has climbed a social mountain to become a royal princess. Little did she know when she posed for pictures outside Buckingham Palace that one day she would be meeting the Queen and marrying her grandson. This is truly a modern day fairy tale.

Author Details Andrew Morton studied history at the University of Sussex, England, with a focus on aristocracy and the 1930s. Morton has written biographies featuring the British Royal Family as well as celebrities, including Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie, and Madonna. His bestselling biography of Princess Diana , Diana: Her True Story , met with international acclaim as "the closest we will ever come to her autobiography."

Hello Hello Brendan Wenzel The next book from the author and illustrator of the Caldecott Honour-winning They All Saw a Cat is an ingenious and inspiring celebration of diversity in the natural world – in all its colours, shapes, sizes, differences, and similarities. In this brilliant follow up to the Caldecott Honour-winning They All Saw a Cat, bestselling author Brendan Wenzel presents a chain of animals of dazzling variety. Each one is different from the last, yet each is also linked by at least one common trait: some obvious, some more subtle. As colours and patterns mix and mingle, and as paws and snouts meet, each unexpected encounter celebrates the magnificent diversity of our world – and ultimately paints a story of connection. Joyous, rhythmic text and Wenzel's exuberant art encourage readers of all kinds to delight in nature's infinite differences, and to look for – and marvel at – its gorgeous similarities. It all starts with a simple 'Hello.' Publication

Becoming Barbra The Young Streisand from New York to Paris Bill Eppridge Becoming Barbra presents a never-before-seen look at a star in the making by an award-winning photographer with full access. From the humble beginnings of Barbra Streisand’s career in 1963 to full-fledged stardom in 1966, renowned Life magazine photographer Bill Eppridge had full access to the young singer. He photographed Streisand shopping in a thrift shop; trying on outfits in her apartment; and there’s an appearance on the The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson — then live from New York. Eppridge documented Streisand meeting with producer David Merrick, who wanted her for the starring role in Broadway’s Funny Girl, which catapulted her to celebrity status. By the time Eppridge caught up with Streisand in 1966, she was a star in full orbit. Funny Girl had just wrapped, CBS had signed her to star in three television specials, five of her albums had gone gold and one platinum, and she had received three Grammys and an Emmy. Eppridge photographed Streisand throughout her CBS rehearsals and recording sessions, then went to Paris where he covered her at fashion shows with Marlene Dietrich and Coco Chanel, and captured a Richard Avedon shoot of her for French Vogue.

Planting Gardens in Graves Volume One r.h. Sin From the beloved author of Whiskey Words and a Shovel comes the first volume in an all new series. r.h. Sin returns with a force in Planting Gardens in Graves: a powerful collection of poetry that hones in on the themes dearest to his readers. This original volume celebrates connection, mourns heartbreak, and above all, empowers its readers to seek the love they deserve.

Author Details Born in New Brunswick, NJ, and later moving to Florida, r.h. Sin comes from a place where a life of pain is the norm and destruction is a constant.

After returning to the northeast and moving to New York in pursuit of love, the young modern poet found that and much more.

Vegetariano 400 Regional Italian Recipes Slow Food Editore Unmatched in authenticity and scope, this celebration of vegetarian Italian cooking from Slow Food draws on traditional recipes, from the Alps to the tip of the boot and the islands. Cooks across Italy have been making vegetarian dishes for centuries. Full of the exhaustive research and bona fides that readers worldwide have come to expect from Slow Food, Vegetariano collects over 400 of the best vegetarian (and frequently vegan) recipes from home cooks in every region of Italy – all approachable, cookable, and full of the rustic Italian spirit of abbondanza and gracious hospitality.

Befitting recipes handed down through families, most feature their original preparations and ingredients, rather than being re-engineered as vegetarian by modern chefs. Local knowledge and experience are highlighted, showcasing the generations of respect Italian cooks have lavished on their verdure. Sustainability, versatility, and a frugal cook’s lack of waste all characterise the recipes meticulously researched by Slow Food. Organised by course, these 400-plus recipes are perfect for family meals and celebratory feasts alike, and each features charming cultural details and culinary customs not found in chef-driven books.

Author Details Slow Food is a global, grassroots organisation. It was founded in 1989 to prevent the disappearance of local food traditions, counteract the rise of fast life, and combat people's dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, and how food choices affect the world around us. Founded in Italy, it is now active in more than 160 countries and involves millions of participants. Slow Food runs two international conferences annually and organises hundreds of other events, both through its headquarters and via its more than 1,500 local chapters.

Key Information • • • • •

Readers can be assured these recipes are the real deal, as they were all carefully researched by Slow Food. This nonprofit organisation, started in Italy, is renowned as the world's defender of authentic regional food traditions. With 400 recipes, this is a truly comprehensive cookbook, and there's room for everything from familiar classics to intriguing but less widely known dishes – all traditionally prepared in ways that make them suitable for vegetarians. These are all age-old recipes passed down through the generations, and every region is represented. Readers frustrated by chef cookbooks that prove impractical at home will find that the biggest challenge here is deciding where to start. Techniques are simple and clearly explained. Even the ingredients, often humble, are accessible. This is because these traditional regional recipes are by definition unpretentious, home-style cooking.

Saladish A Crunchier, Grainier, Herbier, Heartier, Tastier Way With Vegetables Ilene Rosen Wholly original, intensely flavourful, and incredibly satisfying salads and other vegetable-forward dishes. A 'saladish' recipe is like a salad, and yet so much more. It starts with an unexpectedly wide range of ingredients, such as Japanese eggplants, broccoli rabe, shirataki noodles, Bosc pears, and chrysanthemum leaves. It emphasises contrasting textures – toothsome, fluffy, crunchy, crispy, hefty. It marries contrasting flavours – rich, sharp, sweet, and salty. Toss all together and voilà: an irresistible symphony that’s at once healthy and utterly delicious.

Cooking the saladish way has been Ilene Rosen's genius since she unveiled the first kale salad at New York's City Bakery almost two decades ago, and now she shares 100 fresh and creative recipes, organised seasonally, from the intoxicatingly aromatic (Toasty Broccoli with Curry Leaves and Coconut) to the colourfully hearty (Red Potatoes with Chorizo and Roasted Grapes). Each chapter includes a fun party menu, a timeline of preparation, and an illustrated tablescape to turn a saladish meal into an impressive dinner party spread.

Author Details Ilene Rosen is the chef, creative director, and co-owner of R&D Foods, a specialty grocery shop featuring her prepared foods that opened in Brooklyn in 2013. Previously, Rosen spent 15 years as the savoury chef at City Bakery, where she basked in the glory of seasonal produce and honed her craft creating the salad bar that gained a cult following.

Key Information •

Featuring more than 100 vegetable- and grain-centric dishes that are both on trend and time-tested by an expert who has spent her career cooking with wholesome, seasonal ingredients.

No sad and ascetic iceberg here! Rosen’s recipes feature an abundance of vegetables, grains, cheeses, and nuts that are sure to leave you sated.

Rosen has a caterer’s mentality, and hallmarks of her recipes include a minimal number of pots and pans, steps that can be done ahead, one-bowl dishes that can be served and remain at room temperature, and serving sizes that can be easily doubled, tripled, etc., to feed a crowd.

Rosen illustrates dozens of time-saving, flavour-enhancing techniques learned from decades in the kitchen and introduces and demystifies unfamiliar ingredients that will soon become readers’ new pantry staples.

This book is for home cooks seeking fuss-free, healthful, tasty recipes; for foodies looking to discover unfamiliar ingredients and new techniques; and for vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free eaters (95 percent of the recipes meet some or all these criteria).

First, Catch Notes on a Spring Meal Thom Eagle Food writing at its absolute best: a careful construction and celebration of the perfect early spring meal. ‘The thing to do is just begin. The question, of course, is where?’ So opens Thom Eagle’s hymn to a singular early spring meal. A cookbook without recipes, this is an invitation to journey through the mind of a chef as they work. Stand next to Thom in the kitchen as he muses on the very best way to coax flavour out of an onion (slowly, and with more care than you might expect), or considers the crucial role of salt in the creation of the perfect assembly for early green shoots and leaves. In an era when we are so distracted that we eat almost without realising what we’ve just put in our mouth, this is food and writing to savour, gently steering the cook back towards simplicity, confidence and, above all, taste.

India Hicks: A Slice of England The Story of Four Houses India Hicks The first look at designer India Hicks’s house in the English countryside, as well as the houses of her childhood. A follow-up to India Hicks's New York Times bestselling book, India Hicks: Island Style, India Hicks: A Slice of England is the designer’s exploration of her British heritage and how she has expressed it in her newly finished English country house in Oxfordshire. The book is divided into two parts. Part one, Legacy, is the story of her family’s homes, including the renowned Broadlands estate, and her parents’ houses, Britwell and the Grove, as well as her father David Hicks’s famous garden. The second half of the book is the story of her new home, America Farm, a stunning example of how she has reinterpreted English tradition and made it her own. She covers life upstairs and downstairs, on the grounds and in the surrounding country, including local pubs, circuses, and markets. Enriched with the witty and tender stories of Hicks’s life growing up as British and design royalty, this is a book about the power of houses with family history, and the joy of adapting them for modern life.

Perfect English Townhouse Ros Byam Shaw Continuing her exploration of English interiors, Ros Byam Shaw visits 15 distinctive townhouses full of charm, character and style. Most people live in a town or a city. One fifth of the population of Great Britain lives in London alone. Some dream of escaping to a green valley or a cottage by the sea, but for most of us work, finances, and the urban lifestyle exert a stronger pull. Cities and towns are exciting places to live, but the housing choices are inevitably limited by space. Where land is scarce and valuable, homes tend to be arranged vertically rather than horizontally, sometimes semi-detached but more often in terraced rows. In Perfect English Townhouse, Ros Byam Shaw examines the timeless English style of decoration in a variety of Georgian, Victorian and contemporary townhouses.

Architecturally, these tall, narrow properties present challenges. How do you make the best of a basement kitchen with a low ceiling and limited light? Or allocate space when you live on five floors? And how do you maximize any precious outdoor space? The book features case studies of such homes, not only in London but also in the provincial towns and cities of England. Some feel like little pockets of countryside surrounded by pavements, others have a more sophisticated, metropolitan allure; some are endearingly eccentric, others more classical. All the interiors featured are inspiring, and reflect the personalities of the people who inhabit them. These are the kinds of space that most of us are familiar with, and that many of us occupy. What is unusual is how cleverly and creatively they have been decorated and designed.

Author Details Ros Byam Shaw is a former Features Editor of The World of Interiors and Deputy Editor of the British edition of the US fashion and lifestyle newspaper, W. She is the author of Perfect English, Perfect English Farmhouse, English Eccentric and Perfect French Country, as well as the bestselling Farrow & Ball Living with Colour and Farrow & Ball Decorating with Colour.

Deeply Grateful & Entirely Unsatisfied A Book for Anyone Wondering If Life Is Giving You Magical Gifts or Just Messing with You Amanda Happe

What does it mean to be vulnerable and defiant at the same time? In Deeply Grateful & Entirely Unsatisfied, Amanda Happe investigates this question through a series of marker drawings featuring striking colour fields and quirky hand-lettered sentiments. Organised into chapters with titles like 'Life Loves Tough Love,' 'Who We Should Be,' and 'You Have a Limited Amount of Time During Which to Become an Unrelenting Beam of Light,' each section opens with a short essay and houses a series of illustrations that speak to the chapter's theme. Happe's idiosyncratic way of looking at the world – honest, vulnerable, encouraging, brave, and often very funny – makes this a uniquely giftable volume perfect for millennials, graduates, loved ones, and seekers.

Author Details Amanda Happe is an artist, photographer, illustrator, and designer based in Toronto. She is the founder and creative director of Working Session, a strategic design firm, and she also runs an independent creative practice called Three of Wands.

Key Information •

Happe's aesthetic and art is super timely – as is her attitude. The next wave in positivity acknowledges that not everything is all sunbeams and rainbows – the new zeitgeist faces the darker side of life and offers encouragement to bravely stay open and vulnerable even in the face of adversity.

Even in the crowded self-help creativity and illustrated gift book categories, there is nothing else out there with this mix of smarts, compassion, quirk, and on-trend visuals.

Thanks to Happe's distinctive voice and style, Deeply Grateful & Entirely Unsatisfied truly stands out from the crowd.

A horizontal trim and an eye-catching package sets this book apart from the sea of small vertical 'extended greeting card' books.

Happe's short essays and unique approach to life make this volume a great value proposition; her instinctive grasp of life's inherent contradictions makes her prose both relatable and inspiring.

Kew: The Golden Age of Botanical Art Martyn Rix

Kew: The Golden Age of Botanical Art brings together the stories of the intrepid explorers – some of whom became botanical artists by default – and the many professional artists who recorded the flora that they discovered on their travels and expeditions. From some of the earliest attempts at art to the plant hunters of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the images produced in the study of plants have held a fascination for all those who love nature. Truly global in its scope, this beautifully illustrated book moves across centuries and continents looking at the artistry of China and India, delving into the sketchbooks of explorers in the Himalayas and following the voyages of those who discovered new worlds and new species as far apart as Russia and South America. Alongside special features on key figures in the botanical art world, Kew: The Golden Age of Botanical Art highlights the work of some of the great names of botanical art, including Ehret and Bauer. Included within is a host of rarely published and previously unpublished images from the Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew, England, as well as an outline on how what might have been a pastime for some also made a significant contribution to our understanding of the world and the glories of nature.

In this petite, exquisite book, globetrotting artist Shirin Sahba sweeps readers away on a journey around the world. Taking classical Persian miniatures as her inspiration, Sahba has painted scenes and motifs from all over the world in a fresh and modern style that features bold horizon lines, vibrant colours, and incredibly intricate patterns. Each piece of art evokes a place and tells a story, capturing fleeting moments and small treasures-a brightly coloured sari fluttering in the breeze, a mother and child enjoying gelati on a hot Italian day, the mesmerising pattern of an antique Chinese carpet.

The petite square format and optimistic title make it a beautiful gift not only for travellers and creatives, but also for recent grads.

Illustrated travel books tend to focus on one destination or on the art of mapmaking in particular. General armchair travel books, on the other hand, are usually photographic. This book offers a refreshing alternative that will appeal to both existing audiences.

Sahba has been featured on Design*Sponge, Beautiful/Decay, Booooooom, Art Hound, and many other blogs. She also has her own blog, where she writes about her paintings and travels: limonana.blogspot.com.

Head to Toe The Nude in Graphic Design Mirko Ilic A first-of-its-kind celebration featuring more than 600 examples of the human body as represented in graphic design. This groundbreaking volume investigates and illuminates a new generation of artists and the ways that they relate to one of art history’s most storied traditions: nude figure drawing and painting. This informative (and occasionally very cheeky) book demonstrates the ways in which new mediums and new technologies are pushing graphic designers to previously untold heights of artistic representation, thereby cementing the graphic designer’s place alongside more traditional mediums (drawing, painting) in art history and criticism. From PETA’s infamous “I’d Rather Go Nude” ad campaign, to John Lennon and Yoko Ono posing nude on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, Head to Toe features myriad examples of the nude figure and how it is altered and manipulated in the service of both art and commerce.

1930's Fashion The Definitive Sourcebook Charlotte Fiell and Emmanuelle Dirix

The 1930s was a turbulent decade for the world at large – a decade framed by two world-changing events, the economic crash of 1929 and the outbreak of the Second World War ten years later. This book reveals a world of revolutionary changes in fashion, and demonstrates the remarkable ingeniuty and inventiveness of designers and home-seamstresses who managed to thrive despite economic constraints and turmoil in Europe. This is decade of the skirt suit, of sportswear-as-daywear and jersey fabrics. But it was the Thirties that also saw the rise of the glamorous Hollywood fashions, with silver-screen goddesses wearing slinky satin gowns that marked a new and overtly sensual direction within women's fashion design. Many of the images in this fabulous collection have been selected from popular fashion publications of the day, mail-order catalogues, and Hollywood studio press shots, including material from Chic Parisien, Harper's Bazaar, Sears, La Femme Chic and top film studios Metro-Golwyn-Mayer, RKO and Paramount.

Making their own toys, games, gifts and ornaments encourages children to use their creative flair – and if they can use component parts that are adapted or recycled, so much the better for them and the planet. None of Emma Hardy’s projects in Green Crafts for Children use any special materials. Instead, they all rely on items that are likely to be in the cupboard, can be found around the house or garden, or collected on walks in the park or at the beach. There are recipes for salt dough and methods for easy felting, plus ways to imaginatively use old gift-wrapping paper and worn-out clothes, as well as pine cones, tree bark, shells and other natural bits and bobs. Gifts for relatives and friends are here, together with games and toys that can be made and then played with again and again. From painted stones and a friendship bracelet to a simple dolls’ house and a driftwood boat, children will love the projects in this engaging book. In fact, kids need never be bored again.

Author Details Emma Hardy is a stylist and designer who has worked on various lifestyle and interiors magazines, including Country Homes and Interiors and Marie Claire. Her previous books include Learn to Sew, Making Children’s Clothes, My First Craft Book, My First Sewing Machine Book, My First Stitching & Sewing Book, and Sewing Dress-Up, all published by CICO Books.

Key Information •

35 fun projects with easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions.

Makes children aware of the natural environment and the importance of recycling rather than wasting materials.

Perfect for all occasions, from rainy day activities to party games, ideal to keep your child occupied on weekends and holidays.

A Songs with Our Eyes Closed Tyler Kent White

Many of the poems included here are short and uplifting, with messages such as “be yourself,” “you are beautiful,” and “this too shall pass.” They combine the appeal of short, shareable poems with inspiration and encouragement. Also included are some of White’s lengthier, prose-poetic pieces, which address his childhood, his relationship with his father, and past romantic relationships, among other things. Whatever the form, White takes inspiration from the everyday, writing about abstract topics like love, loss, depression, and resilience using concrete, relatable details and scenes.

Author Details Tyler Kent White is an explorer of the human condition. His writing is an intimate look at the personal relationship we have with the world around us, examining life, love, loss, and longing in a way that is both melancholy and hopeful. Tyler believes that by sharing his own fears, doubts, and struggles he can help others realise they are not alone in their journey, that there is always someone out there who experiences and understands the full spectrum of emotions as they do.

Key Information •

Paperback editions of classical Indian myths abound and sell well, but there is no recent publishing of Indian folktales for adults, and no publishing at all that takes a contemporary, illustrated, gift approach to these stories.

Indian culture is well-loved and widely admired. In particular, Indian-Australians (a large and growing population) will read this book to celebrate and learn more about their culture.

The enduring appeal of folktales and fairy tales has spawned countless YA bestsellers, TV shows, and blockbuster movies. This book offers something new: folktales from outside the European cannon, paired with contemporary art, and presented in a sophisticated package.

This book offers an appealing way for adults and kids to hear a different voice in a field dominated by European authors. The authors include both Indian and English writers, and both men and women, all of whom approached the material with a genuine wish to celebrate Indian folklore. The team of illustrators brings a contemporary Indian voice to the book.

Charles James Portrait of an Unreasonable Man: Fame, Fashion, Art Michele Gerber Klein Inspired by the discovery of long-overlooked interviews conducted just before his death, this is the first biography of the visionary fashion designer Charles James. Christian Dior described him as the inspiration for the “New Look.” Salvador Dalí called his work “soft sculpture,” and Virginia Woolf exclaimed, “He is a genius.” As George Bernard Shaw tells us, only unreasonable men change the world. This portrait of the life and times of Charles James – winner of two Coty awards, and the subject of a 2014 Metropolitan Museum of Art show – draws on the glamour of Europe in the 1930s, and the dazzle of New York City from the ’40s through the ’70s as it travels with James from his birth to privilege in England in 1906, and follows his career through his complex and turbulent relationships with exceptional women such as Elsa Schiaparelli and Eleanor Lambert, ending with his penurious death in New York’s fabled Chelsea Hotel. As engrossing as a novel, as dramatic as grand opera, James’s story will provoke, rivet, and inspire. Publication

This book is unique in its access to the real Charles James. Over 40 hours of live interviews were made just before his death in 1978; these tapes are the only existing video interviews of Charles James.

Interest in Charles James remains strong. His work was the subject of the inaugural show of the newly renovated Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2014, entitled "Beyond Charles James" and featured 65 of his most notable designs.

Each chapter features one of the famous women who were his clients or friends. From Anne, Countess of Rosse, who gave him entrée into a key circle of friends and supporters during the 1930s to Elizabeth Arden, in the early 40s and the Standard Oil heiress Millicent Rogers in the late 40s and his friend-turned-adversary, Eleanor Lambert.

James was determined to live life on his own terms, regardless of the consequences, making his story a source of inspiration for anyone swimming against mainstream expectations.

Key Information •

The author always longed to own a dog; when she left behind a lucrative job and relocated to Amsterdam so she could get one (the mighty McDuff), her life began to unfold in rich, real, funny ways.

Leslie Oschmann is a former visual director known for her taste and artistic flair, which are in evidence on every page of this book. Her work as an artist and maker has been featured in top blogs including design*sponge, Decor8, and sfgirlbybay.

Each spread in the book is a photo montage with images of McDuff's world, watercolour washes, and visual background textures like canvas and paper, paired with short, insightful handwritten text that draws the reader into a three-dimensional experience.

This book balances sweet and silly – McDuff's tendency to appear in the unlikeliest of places – with a deep, universal thread – a human's search for her joy, and the role of her canine friend in seeing the world and its potential through all-new eyes.

Pandemic 1918 The Story of the Deadliest Influenza in History Catherine Arnold

German soldiers termed it Blitzkatarrh, British soldiers called it Flanders Grippe, but globally the pandemic gained the notorious title of ‘Spanish Flu’. Nowhere escaped this common enemy: in Britain, 250,000 people died, in the United States it was 750,000, five times its total military fatalities in the war, while European deaths reached over two million. The numbers are staggering. And yet at the time, news of the danger was suppressed for fear of impacting war-time morale. Even today these figures are shocking to many – the war still hiding this terrifying menace in its shadow. Behind the numbers are human lives, stories of those who suffered and fought it – in the hospitals and laboratories. Catharine Arnold traces the course of the disease, its origins and progress, across the globe via these remarkable people. Some are well known to us, like British Prime Minister David Lloyd George, US President Woodrow Wilson, and writers Robert Graves and Vera Brittain, but many more are unknown. They are the doughboys from the US, gold miners in South Africa, schoolgirls in Great Britain and many others.

This Is Us A Guided Journal For All of Us 20th Century Fox Based on the breakout hit television show about the intertwining stories of the Pearson family, this guided journal provides a framework for families to document their own unique journeys. This Is Us is a smart, modern dramedy that challenges everyday presumptions about the people you think you know. From the writer and directors of Crazy, Stupid, Love, the show stars a unique ensemble of characters played by Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, and Justin Hartley. Each show’s moments become the topic of conversation, and have attracted an enormously loyal, and vocal, fan base. Inspired by the show’s universal themes of family love and friendship, as well as the small and big moments of comedy and tragedy that fill a life well-lived, this guided journal is filled with more than 100 prompts, including "We faced our biggest challenge when…" and "We never laughed harder than the time…" It will encourage fans of the show – as well as anyone who wants to chronicle the story of their own family – to put pen to paper and document the ups and downs of their own family's experiences. Just as the show attracts a cross-generational fan base, this journal is perfect for family historians of any age. Whether as a gift to a child, parent, or grandparent, the personal thoughts and remembrances personally put into the pages of this keepsake will make it a thoughtful and treasured part of anyone’s home.

Forest Life Notebook Set

20 Notecards & Envelopes

Nathalie Lete

Nathalie Lete Author Details Paris-based artist Nathalie Lete creates delightfully whimsical illustrations of forest landscapes. She mixes different techniques and mediums-illustration, ceramics, textile, painting, and more. She is inspired by travel, vintage ephemera, folk art, and old engravings of flowers and animals. Her work is colorful, naive, and poetic, sometimes strange, to the point of tending towards art brut. You can view more of her creations at: www.nathalie-lete.com.

Key Information

This set of notecards features Nathalie's colourful images of flowers, mushrooms, rabbits, hedgehogs, foxes, and more!

This two-notebook set features foil accents on the spine, gilded edges, and full-colour cover illustrations of flowers, mushrooms, birds, rabbits, and an adorable hedgehog!

Key Information •

This unique format captures the nostalgic appeal of snail mail, coupons, certificates, tickets, and all things analog – increasingly indemand in an era in which more and more people are seeking ways to unplug and treasure the tactile.

People want to engage in, and gift, experiences rather than stuff. This format combines the best of both worlds: it's a personalised collection of things you love about someone for them to cherish and keep, and it's also the gift of activities that you'll share together (like IOUs for a perfect day or coupons for spontaneous pep talks) as well as for them to enjoy alone (like a prescription for naptime or movie, book, and restaurant recommendations for them to try out).

Lucy Halcomb aka Lucy Mail cleverly applies her bright and cheerful paintings to stationery in a way that plays up the simple joy of opening mail. Her painted envelopes are drawing attention from a wide audience as the rising popularity of her Instagram feed (@lucy_mail) attests (30K followers). She recently ran a series of pen pal exchanges over on Oh Happy Day, launched a self published line of single greeting cards in Spring 2017, and in Fall 2017 she will have a line of shoes out with the NY-based brand Soludos. Our new format plays up exactly the charming qualities that have brought this rising star into the spotlight.

With interactive prompts that range from quick little jottings and checklists to whole pages to draw and reflect, parents are encouraged to record both the sweetest moments (tape in a photo of your child in an outfit so adorable you can barely stand it) and the not-always-perfect realities (draw the worst thing you've ever pulled out of your child's mouth). With adorable illustrations and a wide variety of both heartfelt and hilarious journalling exercises developed and drawn by popular blogger Raquel D'Apice (www.theuglyvolvo.com), every entry celebrates the fun, playful, and irreverent side of parenting, while providing an endearing keepsake of true to life memories of your child that will live on as family lore for years to come.

Other than the premium limited edition Moleskine journals there's no Star Wars branded notebook or journal publishing other than for kids.

The mockups created to pitch this to Lucas prompted 'What's that, I want it!?' reactions. The journal format is a great showcase for the artwork and these are likely to be seen as collectible, or identity pieces for fans who actually use them.

This is the third and final of three notebooks collections, one per film for the original trilogy.

Working with Lucasfilm, we've selected both fan favourite and rare images and really displayed them in a covetable way that fans can engage with daily, or keep bagged and just admire as objects.

Switzerland A Guide to Exploring the Country by Public Transport Anthony Lambert

Bradt's Switzerland is unique. No other guide book is devoted to Swiss public transport, which is the easiest, most enjoyable and responsible way to travel. The guide offers depth and breadth of coverage, encompassing culture, architecture, landscapes, walking and cycling, and fascinating facts for railway enthusiasts! There's a host of tips for reducing costs in a country known for being expensive, while a new section on food and wine includes a list of top restaurants. Switzerland has some of the world's most beautiful landscapes; though mountains and lakes cover most of the country's regions, each offers something quite different - and the four official languages add colour and variety. Switzerland's cities are among the world's most beautiful - and safest. Its capital, Bern, is a World Heritage Site with 6 kilometres of covered arcades, where even jaded shoppers will be enthralled by hundreds of independent shops. Lucerne's lakeside setting is unrivalled, with mountains in every direction and the floodlit city walls providing a breath-taking backdrop to the historic centre. Lausanne and Geneva overlook Lac Léman, and Basel is enhanced by a broad sweep of the Rhine. With Bradt's Switzerland: A Guide to Exploring the Country by Public Transport, you can enjoy all the qualities that help ensure Switzerland and its cities are consistently ranked as the most liveable in the world.

Iceland Andrew Evans

Replete with lava flows, colossal glaciers and thundering waterfalls, Iceland is one of Europe's most unusual destinations. Pure, wild, and still in the midst of its own creation, it stands apart from the rest of Europe. With its moody volcanoes and massive ice caps, Iceland has caught the world's curiosity like never before. Iceland offers visitors a chance to get close and personal with its immense nature and vivid wildlife, to experience the live volcanoes and ancient glaciers, and gape at roaring waterfalls and the drifts of obsidian sand in the country's bleak desert interior. This new, thoroughly updated edition of Bradt's Iceland provides more context for individual places than any other guidebook, plus honest, investigative hotel and restaurant reviews that hide nothing. Bradt's Iceland is in-depth, well-researched and comprehensive, featuring a year-round approach to travelling in Iceland. This latest edition covers the growing tourist infrastructure: the new, fullypaved road system, better routes through the interior, a wave of new hotels and resorts, more tour companies with more tour options, new adventure activities, plus day tours from port city destinations and tips for those travellers arriving by cruise ship. Natural history and wildlife experiences are featured prominently along with a focus on the outdoors and help in accessing even the most difficult corners of Iceland. Also featured is the most in-depth political and economic analysis offered by any guidebook since the turmoil of 2008. And, even though Iceland is notoriously expensive, there are now a lot more options for travellers, including more hostels, campsites, and budget airlines. This new edition also includes a foreword by the newly elected President of Iceland, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson. Containing information on remote offshore islands, the uninhabited interior and Reykjavik's bustling music and art scene, this remains the definitive guide.

Sri Lanka Philip Briggs

The new sixth edition of Bradt's Sri Lanka is the longest and by far the most comprehensive guidebook ever published to this alluring island nation, and now includes a brand new, detailed, full-colour wildlife section. The new guide incorporates detailed coverage of every aspect of this diverse and compact land, from the idyllic tropical coastline to the misty forests of Hill Country. Not only does the book provide in-depth sections on all major beach resorts, archaeological reserves, historic towns and national parks, but it also introduces adventurous travellers to a host of intriguing lesser-known sites, along with many emergent destinations inaccessible for decades prior to the end of the civil war in 2009. Extensive hotel and restaurant listings, covering everything from exclusive boutique hotels to shoestring homestays, have been compiled from scratch rather than updated from historical information, with each entry having been cherry-picked by the author based on his personal inspection of hundreds upon hundreds of properties countrywide. More than 70 newly drawn maps cover all towns and resorts of note, as well as the main national parks and their surrounds.

Sri Lanka has enjoyed a high level of political stability and safety since the civil war ended in May 2009, encouraging a tourist boom in the south, and the gradual opening of the north and east to independent travel. Beach holidays are an all-year attraction, while a host of fantastic Buddhist-affiliated UNESCO World Heritage Sites ranges from the massive dagobas of Anuradhapura, built in pre-Christian times on a scale to rival the Egyptian pyramids, to the exquisitely painted cave temples of Dambulla. Wildlife-viewing opportunities abound, and this guide provides unparalleled, illustrated advice on making the most of these. Asia's densest wild elephant and leopard populations are protected in the island's extensive network of national parks, and there's also fine offshore whale and dolphin-watching, and a bird checklist of 450 species including more than 30 endemics.

Author Details Philip Briggs is one of the world's most experienced and knowledgeable guidebook writers, having researched and written guides for Bradt and other well-known publishers for over 30 years. For many years his focus was on Africa but recently he has turned his attention to both South America and Asia, authoring the Bradt Guide to Suriname and now Bradt's Sri Lanka.

Despite burgeoning interest, Serbia remains one of the least known corners of Europe. Belgrade and second city Novi Sad are lively, cosmopolitan and welcoming, while rural Serbia, with its hidden monasteries and gorgeous countryside, is an undiscovered gem. With the Bradt guide you will be able to discover all this intriguing country has to offer.

Development of tourism infrastructure continues apace in Serbia and this new edition reflects all the changes and trends of recent years, including Belgrade's increasing popularity as a weekend break destination, the continued evolution and rising quality of accommodation across all price brackets in both the capital and beyond, the development of Belgrade's Savamala riverfront area, the rise in popularity of bird-watching holidays, the possibilities for wine tours, and the increase in visitors to the EXIT festival held annually in Novi Sad and to the Guca trumpet festival in central Serbia. Particularly notable since the previous edition is Serbia's dramatic improvement in English-language facilities for visitors, with many towns and cities now having tourist information centres with helpful staff, all of which are detailed in this guide.

There's advice, too, for active travellers who can rattle their whips on cattle-ranching estancias and spin their sticks in a game of polo or two and for nature enthusiasts keen to watch wildlife in the western wetlands and birds in Cabo Polonio and Santa Teresa. The guide also investigates the Brazilian influences behind Uruguay's music and dance, an active and upcoming food and wine scene, and the country's distinctive Afro-Uruguayan heritage, most noticeable during the world-beating 80-day Carnaval season.

Transylvania Lucy Mallows

Transylvania, literally the 'land beyond the forest', is a wild, wooded, intensely romantic region, filled with mountains, gorges and valleys, myths and legends, dragons, bears, wolves – and vampires. Bram Stoker called it 'one of the wildest and least-known parts of Europe' a description which remains true today. This new, third edition of Bradt's Romania: Transylvania remains the only standalone English language guide to this legendary and enchanting region. Comprehensive chapter-per-county coverage is offered, including details to cater for the diverse range of travellers to the region, from city breaks to rural escapes, ski enthusiasts to charity volunteers. Thoroughly updated, this new edition reflects all the changes of the past few years, from improved transport infrastructure (in particular the regional airports at Cluj, Sibiu and Târgu Mures) to the completion of new motorway routes, such as that between Sibiu and Deva. Also covered are a number of striking new accommodation options: for example the sustainable guesthouse in Valea Zalanului owned by HRH The Prince of Wales, and the mountaintop retreat of Raven's Nest in the Apuseni Mountains. More attractions have opened up, such as Baroque palaces formerly owned by Hungarian aristocrats, seized under the Communist regime and now being restored by the descendants of their original owners. The region is developing its offer for new types of tourism, such as summer rock festivals, notably the Untold Festival at Cluj and Electric Castle Festival at Bontida. Publication

The Gambia Philip Briggs

Bradt's The Gambia reveals all the background and practical information needed to explore arguably Africa's most welcoming and safest country with its plethora of beach resorts catering to all tastes and budgets that line the 80km stretch of tropical coastline running from the capital Banjul to the remote southern border. Small in size but rich in African character, The Gambia offers perhaps the closest English-speaking 'winter sun' destination from Europe. Justifiably popular with birdwatchers, the lush mangrove and jungle fringed river is also home to crocodiles, hippos, chimpanzees and a variety of monkeys. Historic attractions include the mysterious megalithic stone circles at Wassu and Ker Batch, and the fortified James Island and former slave-trading village of Juffureh (to where Alex Haley traced his ancestry in the book and TV programme Roots) – all of which form part of the country's two UNESCO World Heritage Sites and offer rich pickings to moderately adventurous travellers. All in all, Bradt's The Gambia is the perfect companion for discovering this safe, welcoming and decidedly tourist-friendly Englishspeaking country which makes for an ideal short-stay introduction to the unique atmosphere of Africa.

With Bradt's Sierra Leone you can explore the infamous diamond mines and rainforest-covered mountains; go in search of pygmy hippos or relax on the country's beaches and islands. Offering significantly more coverage than any other guide, it is an ideal companion for tourists, volunteers and international workers alike, and also covers newly declared eco-tourist sites as well as the trans-boundary 'peace park' of Gola Forest National Park, shared with neighbouring Liberia. This new edition also covers Freetown's new beach music festival, as well as details of everything from where to visit rescued chimpanzees to touring the traditional wooden-board homes of the Krio people, descendants of repatriated slaves from the Americas and Europe.

Author Details Katrina Manson is an award-winning journalist who covered Africa for 12 years. She is US foreign policy and defence correspondent for the Financial Times, based in Washington DC, and is also writing a book about money, power and influence networks in Africa. James Knight has more than ten years' experience working on emerging market countries as a journalist, writer and consultant. He now works at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, having previously been a Senior Associate at a London-based communications agency, and freelanced for Reuters, ITV and The Sunday Times. This edition was updated by Sean Connolly, who has updated or contributed to the Bradt guides to Somaliland, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Ghana, and Uruguay, and is the author of the first Bradt Guide to Senegal.

While there are many books on the market about specific New York bars or categories of bars (like literary bars), there has never been an in-depth, comprehensive illustrated book on New York's greatest bars, taverns, and dives throughout all five boroughs.

The book combines illustrations, historical anecdotes, insider tips, and cocktail recipes that boost its reach to a wide-ranging audience: NYC lovers, visitors, natives, cocktail enthusiasts, gastro-tourists, and more.

Artist John Tebeau's illustrations of New York's classic bars are popular local gift items. Bars, Taverns, and Dives New Yorkers Love is a fresh take on some of the city's most legendary haunts.

Most of New York's legendary haunts are currently presented in general "best places to go in New York" travel articles and guides, and included in tours of the city. The original illustrations, recipes, and witty tips in this book spin them in a completely new light.

Hello Hello Brendan Wenzel The next book from the author and illustrator of the Caldecott Honour-winning They All Saw a Cat is an ingenious and inspiring celebration of diversity in the natural world – in all its colours, shapes, sizes, differences, and similarities. In this brilliant follow up to the Caldecott Honour-winning They All Saw a Cat, bestselling author Brendan Wenzel presents a chain of animals of dazzling variety. Each one is different from the last, yet each is also linked by at least one common trait: some obvious, some more subtle. As colours and patterns mix and mingle, and as paws and snouts meet, each unexpected encounter celebrates the magnificent diversity of our world – and ultimately paints a story of connection. Joyous, rhythmic text and Wenzel's exuberant art encourage readers of all kinds to delight in nature's infinite differences, and to look for – and marvel at – its gorgeous similarities. It all starts with a simple 'Hello.' Publication

The Long Island Drew Beckmeyer

Some of us like the comfort of familiarity. Staying in one place, making a home, building a community – for some, the intimacy of the old routine is satisfaction itself. But the known is not for everyone. When our five protagonists get to wondering what's on the other side of their island, they can't stop until they find out. What follows is an epic journey of discovery, danger, imagination, and ultimately, bittersweet fulfillment. Is it a book about man vs. earth? Man vs. man? Or man vs. self? Like our protagonists, every reader will have their own right answer in this haunting, deceptively simple modern fable. Publication
