I write this just as a massive oil spill has reached the beaches of the Gulf, as Obama has nominated Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, as my new little grandson George sits clapping to the Beatles for the first time, and as our Fall books go, one by one, to the printer. The economy remains odd, to say the least. The digital world is increasingly seductive, like a magician, conjuring new unimaginable tricks almost daily to keep us up at night. We at Welcome watch, listen, and learn—and then continue making exquisite, valuable “artifacts” (the new word for physical books that still want to be physical). Like Buddha, which we dropped in for fall because no one could wait until spring. And, because, like the moon outside your window, you can’t beat it for luminosity and meditation. We dropped A Baker’s Recipe Keeper in, too, because of Thanksgiving and Christmas. Designed specifically for bakers, it will sit next to the Recipe Keeper in our kitchens harboring memories of the meals we have made there and those we dream about. A Bride’s Book of Lists by Marsha Heckman is perfect for spring and the perfect companion to her genius

planner, A Bride’s Book. You will find a list for everything and anything—vows, music, cakes, and themes— eliminating all anxiety and confusion. The Life Organizer: The Essential Record Keeper & Estate Planner is the ultimate hard-working

3-ring binder from Nancy Randolph Greenway. She’s proved it’s possible to provide a place for everything, in addition to teaching us how to plan our financial lives. Whether you are graduating school or moving into retirement, she is the guide to organize your papers and your thinking. And, then there is The Little Big Book of Life, edited by Natasha Tabori Fried, long out of print, coming back with a hilarious coterie of frogs pedaling their joyful way across the cover. A book for graduation, for inspiration, for that moment of transition. From Ken Burns to Woody Allen, from Bill Cosby to Toni Morrison, from Kurt Vonnegut to Jodie Foster, love and surprises fill this endearing volume. For Mother’s Day comes a classic in the making: Memories for my Grandchild, a write-in book for grandmothers, brilliantly designed by Kristen Sasamoto with a blue cloth cover, stamped in gold with a handtipped plate. Having packaged Judy Levy’s brilliant Grandmother Remembers twenty years ago (still in print!), it was time for me to create a precious repository for my very own grandchild. That is what it shall be—a grandmother’s memories of her own life, her child’s life and her grandchild’s—an heirloom to keep forever. Finally, there is Mom’s Book of Lists, edited by Alice Wong. Destined for the night table, it is adorable, simple, small, and packed with smart information from how to avoid the tantrums to when to call the doctor.

We have a great deal of gratitude for Random, and a huge round of applause to all of you.

s pr i n g

This is our fifth spring with Random House. I hope you are experiencing how absolutely—across the board— good our books are. Solidly, beautifully, and surprisingly designed and produced. Well written and conceived.

Buddha

photographs by Jon Ortner introduction by Jack Kornfield

in the twenty-five centuries since the Buddha’s death, his profound teachings and path have guided and enlightened millions of lives. The Buddha also has inspired some of the most beautiful and magnificent artistic creations ever produced by humanity. Jon Ortner’s photographs of over 150 of these extraordinary works of art grace this volume. From the hundreds of rare Laotian Buddhas filling the Pak Ou Caves to the colossal gold and gem-encrusted Maha Muni Buddha of Mandalay, the Buddha’s wisdom, compassion, and serenity are eternally present. Simple but powerful verses from the sacred teachings of the Buddha accompany the photographs. The foreword by Jon Ortner talks about their creation and the introduction by Jack Kornfield gives the reader an understanding of the Buddha’s life and influence. Additional notes in the back of the book provide descriptive and historic information on key images.

Back in print, enlarged, and with a stunning new cover printed on gold foil, this is the perfect gift for practicing Buddhists as well as anyone simply looking for an added measure of beauty and peace in his or her life. Jon ortner has been photographing since the 1970s. His work has appeared in numerous magazines including GEO, Travel & Leisure, and Architectural Digest. He has produced four large format photography books: Manhattan Dawn &Dusk (STC), Where Every Breath Is a Prayer: A Photographic Pilgrimage into the Spiritual Heart of Asia (STC), Angkor, Celestial Temples of the Khmer Empire (Abbeville), and Canyon Wilderness of the Southwest (Welcome). He and his wife and business partner, Martha McGuire, are based in New York. Jack Kornfield was trained as a Buddhist monk in Thailand, Burma, and India. He also holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. A co-founder of the Insight Meditation Society in Massachusetts and of the Spirit Rock Center in northern California, his previous books include A Path with Heart, Seeking the Heart of Wisdom (with Joseph Goldstein), and Teachings of the Buddha. Kornfield is one of the leading Buddhist teachers in America. A practitioner for over 40 years, he is one of the key teachers to introduce mindfulness and vipassana meditation to the West. His approach emphasizes compassion, loving kindness and the profound path of mindful presence.

Featured on each tab is vintage artwork and inspiring quotes from famous dessert lovers such as Marie Antoinette, George Bernard Shaw, and Homer Simpson. Collecting recipes for breads, muffins, pies and sweets has never been so fun and easy. 8 colorful tabs separate and organize recipes by type and occasion for simple, easy access, including:

Throwing the Garter was a tradition that began as a way of distracting the jovial weddings guests so that the newlyweds could sneak off the wedding chamber alone.

h, the “To Do” list—an unfortunate, but entirely necessary, feature of life. Mocking you with its outline of your failures, it can become a daily reminder of your inadequacy. (After all, what is worse than transferring old tasks to a fresh list?) On the other hand, it can inspire great productivity. Keeping you to task, a list can help you focus and build momentum. And, there is nothing like that blissful moment when you are finally able to cross off the last of your responsibilities. Some busy days, it is the tool that prevents your head from falling off. Other days, it is a great distraction from the real tasks that lay ahead. Many people swear by it as the ultimate in organization tools. Others loathe turning their life’s goals into a litany of tasks. If you are a member of this second group—the loathers—take heart. There is a list that you will love: The List! The List contains all your daydreams and life wishes—it is your “fantastic imaginings” list. A list of this kind can be very empowering. It provides an opportunity for you to be selfish and focus on your wants, goals, and desires. Writing down your wish list can help you discover what it is you want out of life. Taking the time to articulate your goals increases the probability that you’ll achieve them.

If you can’t do it with 33 love and cheerfulness, don’t do it at all—go home. M OT H E R T E R E SA

I’ve been one of those persons who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a raincoat and a parachute. If I had to do it again, I would travel lighter than I have. If I had my life live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies. 114

TON I MOR R I S ON Sarah Lawrence College, May 27, 1988

I WA N T T O TA L K A B O U T the activity you are always warned against as being wasteful, impractical, hopeless. I want to talk about dreaming. . . . We are in a mess, you know, and we have to get out. . . . Well, now, you may be asking yourself, “What is all of this? I can’t save the world. What about my life? I didn’t come here for this. I didn’t even ask to come here. I didn’t ask to be born.” Didn’t you? I put it to you that you did. You not only asked to be born, you insisted on your life. That’s why you’re here. There’s no other reason. It’s too easy not to have been born, and now that you’re here, you have to do something. Something you respect, don’t you? Your parents may have wanted you, but they did not dream you up. You did that. I’m just urging you to continue the dream you started, 244

because dreaming is not irresponsible. It’s first order, human business. It’s not entertainment, you know. It’s work. When Martin Luther King said, “I have a dream,” he wasn’t playing; he was serious. When he imagined it, envisioned, created it in his own mind, it began. Now we have to dream it too and give it the heft and stretch and longevity it deserves, but don’t let anybody convince you this is the way the world is and therefore must be. It must be the way it ought to be. . . . You are not helpless and you’re not heartless, and you have time. Thank you.

Commercially grown produce is sprayed with legal amounts of toxic pesticides, which interfere with the way the body processes nutrients. Another concern is the use of antibiotics. From 60 to 80 percent of all cattle, sheep, and poultry in the United States Where You’ll Be will receive antibiotics at some point. Organic food is grown without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, hormones, or antibiotics, and reduces the risk of getting cancer and other Instructions diseases. It pays to buy organic food products toSpecial reduce your exposure. Other times though, it may not be worth the expense. Know your organics!

Provide the caregiver with an up-to-date information sheet (see left). Decide if and when you’d like the caregiver to check in with you. If you don’t want your phone answered by the caregiver, decide how you will get in contact with them in case of emergency or to notify the caregiver if you will be late. Leave a house key for the caregiver. Give instructions for what to do in case of a lock-out. Walk through alarm systems. Show the caregiver where the heat and/or air-conditioning controls are, and how to make adjustments if necessary. Discuss ahead of time if anyone will be dropping by the house for any reason. Give details about who is coming and when they’re expected. If you have pets, talk to the caregiver about what you expect from them regarding care (walks, feedings, pooperscooper patrol, etc.). Let the caregiver know if there are any chores, homework, instrument practice hours, or anything else to be completed by your child in your absence. Discuss your child’s schedule with the caregiver, and give any instructions regarding food preparation, bottle feedings, bedtime routine, etc. Give the caregiver all necessary information relating to fire escape plans including location of extinguishers and fire exits, and where to meet once everyone is out of the house. Lay out the house rules for the caregiver both in reference to what your children are allowed/not allowed to do (such as ride bikes with helmets only, limit television to one hour, etc.) and what is expected of the caregiver (such as no telephone use, no friends over, etc.). Be very straightforward about your rules concerning disciplining your children. This will help to provide consistency for your child and avoid major misunderstandings. Let the caregiver know if you’d like them to take notes on your baby’s eating and sleeping schedule, feedback about your toddler’s behavior, etc.

Use this checklist to help you think about what’s important to communicate to a caregiver.

As in Peter Pan, we should all have Nana the nanny dog at our disposal for our precious darlings! Leaving your wee ones with a caregiver—especially one that’s new to your family—is rarely easy. Having a checklist of points to cover and an information sheet for your child’s caregiver can help put your mind at ease and ensure everything will run smoothly while you are away.

What child has not been captivated by stories of how her grandparents first met? Has not begged to hear the tales of his mother or father growing up…and of himself as a baby… that only grandmother knows? Designed to be an heirloom, gold-stamped, with a beautiful blue cloth binding and tipped on plate, Memories for My Grandchild is a guided memory-keeper for grandmothers to pass on to their grandchildren. Organized to make capturing and displaying grandmother’s stories easy and enjoyable, this charmingly illustrated keepsake journal has space for a family tree, anecdotes about the grandchild’s parents and grandmother’s own childhood, great family traditions and recipes, special moments between grandmother and grandchild, and much more. With places for photographs, memorabilia and many “fill-in-the-blanks,” so the writer is never at a loss for what to include. Memories for My Grandchild is a personalized heirloom that preserves important family history in general, and grandmother’s legacy in particular.

New York City landmarks were born during two most stylish and dazzling decades: the 1920s and 1930s. The Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and the Waldorf-Astoria—as well as dozens of lesser-known but equally stunning office buildings and apartment houses grace this edition. Richard Berenholtz’s photographs of the finest examples of New York City’s art deco architecture are accompanied by literary text from the era.

This awe-inspiring visual odyssey through one of the world’s greatest treasures is an extraordinary publishing achievement. Beautifully photographed by renowned photographer Jon Ortner, this deluxe, numbered edition showcases over 200 images, including 100 panoramas and 10 gatefolds that open to four feet. Shot in over 60 locations across a 130,000-square-mile area, the images cover national parks, national monuments, state parks, wilderness areas, and tribal lands, including the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Petrified Forest.

HISTORY

Inscribed & illustrated by Sam Fink • $500.00 ($675.00 CAN) • 65 loose folios, each 15" x 22" in a 16-1/4" x 23-1/4" x 1-1/4" clamshell box; includes a signed and numbered print • Limited to 1,500 signed & numbered copies • ISBN 978-1-59962-016-9 www.welcomebooks.com/ constitution/limitededition

It’s a beautiful thing, our country’s Constitution, and this extraordinary limited edition gives it its due. Nonagenarian Sam Fink’s unadorned, classically simple calligraphy and exquisite illustrations—originally done in pen-and-ink in 1987 and newly painted in color for these imposing folios (15" x 22")—are approachable and profoundly affecting, underscoring what an elegantly simple document our forefathers had the wisdom and forethought to craft. Housed in an exquisite deep clamshell box (16-1/4" x 23-1/4") and lined in blue Saifu cloth, it also contains a limited-edition print of the entire Constitution, newly calligraphed onto one sheet, signed and numbered by Sam Fink. It is a worthy addition to any home.

e d itio n s Inscribed & illustrated by Sam Fink • $500.00 ($645.00 CAN) • 45 loose folios, each 22" x 16-3/4", in a 23-1/4" x 18" x 1-1/4" clamshell box; includes a separate folio with the English translation and a print signed and numbered by Sam Fink • Limited to 1,000 signed and numbered copies • ISBN 978-1-59962-040-4 ART/RELIGION–JUDAISM www.welcomebooks.com/exodus The Book of Exodus was originally conceived by artist Sam Fink as a gift to his family, now living in Israel. Fink created forty original watercolor skyscapes, one for each chapter in the book of Exodus. This extraordinary text details the Jews’ enslavement in Egypt, their harrowing journey with Moses out of bondage, and the new laws established for them by their God. In these folio prints Sam Fink reaches his family across an ocean—and readers around the world—with breathtaking images that speak to this powerful story. Each watercolor is meticulously hand-lettered with the Old Testament text, in Hebrew and in the Jewish Publication Society’s 1917 English translation. Housed in a blue cloth-covered clamshell box.
