Color Me Miserable Book Review:

“What’s with all this Zen stuff everywhere?” you might be asking yourself. “Oh, it’s a way to cope with the stresses of daily life,” they tell you. “Oh, it’s so relaxing and peaceful,” they say. If you’re one of those people who are perplexed by those sentiments, and understand the tragic hopelessness of life, don’t worry: there’s still a coloring book for you, too. While most of these distractions embrace the idea of peace and tranquility, Color Me Miserable aims to nurture and encourage your inner grouch. It’s here to lend a colored pencil or two to help prop up the crushing weight of this dismal life, as it presses down on you with all of its ambiguity and uncertainty. It gets you. It takes phrases like “This Sucks” or “Disappointed” and plasters them right smack on top of all those pretty flowers—that taunt you with their cheery, majestic rainbows of colorful delight—and makes them a mocking protest of all things charming, wonderful, and sweet. These designs may even make your feel more mindful—of your misery. This book includes perforated pages which are printed on one side, allowing colorists to remove and display their finished works of art or throw them away easily. Color Me Miserable is a coloring collection for all those people out there who look at this beautiful world—sunshine, ice cream, pizza, cats in costumes, the smell of nail polish—and say “Who cares?”

Doug Wheeler Book Review:

Over five decades, Doug Wheeler has pioneered the art of light and space. His work powerfully explores the way we perceive “empty” space—the way light can affect our perception and make emptiness feel full and dense. From his early experiences flying across the desert with his father, a doctor in Globe, Arizona, Wheeler developed a passion for the intensity and stillness of vast expanses, seeing in them a whole new set of possibilities for visual art. Although Wheeler began his career as a painter, his wall-mounted artworks soon began incorporating light as a medium and quickly gave way to an unprecedented art-historical breakthrough: his construction of an absolute light environment, crafted in his studio in 1967. Since that unparalleled moment, Wheeler’s work has been exhibited widely all over the world; in the past decade, with numerous major gallery and museum installations, his reputation as the definitive light and space artist has been solidified. This volume, featuring new scholarship by renowned art historian Germano Celant, traces the entire course of Wheeler’s career to date, from his first mature paintings to his immersive installations. Writing on Wheeler’s intense and direct engagement with the absoluteness in the optical fields he creates, Celant provides a detailed account for Wheeler’s development as one of the most original and influential artists of his generation. Wheeler’s work not only changes how we encounter reality after we see it, but also how we envision what is possible more broadly in visual art.

Ladybird by Design Book Review:

In 1915 the Ladybird logo was registered by Loughborough printer Wills & Hepworth, who used downtime on their printing presses to experiment with producing wholesome illustrated books for children. Now, 100 years of iconic Ladybird books later, Lawrence Zeegen explores the design decisions and illustration influences behind the classic titles. Starting with the company's early days and then moving through the "golden age" of 1950-1970 to the innovative publishing of today, this is both a design retrospective and social history of the last century as explored through the lens of the Ladybird world

For this remarkable book, best-selling writer/artist Suzy Toronto focuses on one of her most popular topics: the bold spirit of women and the remarkable strength of the bonds between them.

They are the women who rise above all obstacles to turn tragedy into triumph and who answer the call to make a difference in the world." This new softcover edition of one of Suzy's most beloved works gathers poems about women, their friendships, and their various roles in life with personal essays about the wonderful wacky women in her own life--and a few recipes sprinkled in for good measure. A celebration of "ordinary women who have accomplished extraordinary things," The Sacred Sisterhood of Wonderful Wacky Women is an inspiring and empowering collection for all women who recognize greatness in the women in their lives and in themselves.

Shabby Chic Book Review:

Valuable flea market finds... A peeling, antioue vanity in muted sea green... An elegant, cracked chandelier... An enormous, slipcovered sofa with deep, cushions... Comfort, the beauty of imperfections, the allure of time-worn objects, and the appeal of simple practical living: these are the cornerstones of what has come to be known as the Shabby Chic style. Like the cozy familiarity of a well-worn pair of faded jeans, the dilapidated elegance of an Italian viIla, or the worn grandeur of faded velvets and mismatched floral china handed down from your grandmother's attic, the Shabby Chic style is a revived appreciation for what is used, well-loved, and worn. It is a respect for natural evolution and a regard for what is easy and sensible. The hundreds of lavish photographs in this book invite you inside the unique world of Shabby Chic. Rachel Ashwell, founder of theShabby Chic home decor stores, for the first time provides her invaluable and much-sought-after advice on how to re-create Shabby Chic style in your own home. With engaging text and easy-to- follow instructions, Rachel details the Shabby Chic basics in a way that will put even the most apprehensive or novice decorators at ease. From flowers to fabrics to lighting, Rachel illuminates all of the elements essential to this unpretentious yet truly exquisite style. A behind-the-scenes look at a flea market lets readers in on Rachel's personal secrets of how to cull hidden treasures from flea market trash--an old trunk, its paint peeling around the edges, can be given new life as a coffee table, while a chipped white iron salvage piece becomes the perfect frame for a vintage mirror. This book tells you not only how to restore these pieces but how to find the perfect place for them in your home. Gorgeous color photographs and accompanying text reveal how this relaxed look works with a variety of different styles, from Victorian to Mediterranean to contemporary.

Balancing Acts Book Review:

There are few jobs more rarefied or as physically and mentally demanding as prima ballerina. And yet, despite very real professional risks, three dancers from the world-class San Francisco Ballet all decided to have children at the pinnacle of their careers. In Balancing Acts, photographer Lucy Gray takes readers on an unforgettable fourteen-year journey with these ballerinas, capturing their remarkable grit and determination. In dramatic black-and white photography, Gray documents their struggles to balance the demands of family and work—from their tireless preparation in rehearsals and dazzling mastery of craft displayed on stage, to their time spent relaxing at home with family and even while giving birth. In extensive interviews the dancers and their husbands discuss their stories with great candor, providing remarkable insight into the life of a ballerina and the everyday challenges and joys of mothers everywhere.

Rolex Passion Book Review:

Today Rolex Passion is the most updated edition on Rolex wristwatches: a book that illustrates and describes all vintage and modern models, including timepieces introduced at Baselworld 2017. Rolex Passion also represents the first “social book” by Mondani, tradition combined with the future: the code QR on the cover of the book takes you directly to our page on Facebook (“Rolex Passion by Mondani”), which has more than half a million followers and is updated with images and information about different watches every day. On this page you can also find watches that are on sale at the most reliable and known retailers worldwide. Another important new element of this book is the large section entirely dedicated to the Rolex watches of our Clients and Followers from all over the world, with unpublished pictures, which arrive directly from the network profiles of our Clients and Followers. A unique opportunity to see wonderful timepieces in constantly different and original contexts. Furthermore, “Rolex Passion” is also the first book of the dealers, since it includes a large chapter on dealers, retailers and vendors worldwide, who are recommended to you by Mondani. This book is perfect for those who are approaching the world of Rolex watches. “Rolex Passion” takes the reader on a journey through the entire production of watches and illustrates the history and the main technical features of all the references. This volume should be present in the bookcase of our Clients, who already own other editions by Mondani, since it is a real novelty, which allows one to follow the most active and updated page about Rolex on Facebook. The preface of this book was written by Roman Sharf, a dealer of new and second wrist luxury watches in Philadelphia. He is esteemed throughout the world and has great experience in the watch market. ROLEX PASSION TOPICS: Rolex Passion describes on more than 350 pages the whole production of the Genevan Maison from the first models up to the present day. This book also illustrates important details, small differences, special features of bezels, dials and hands and a lot more. Rolex Passion is divided in categories in alphabetic order and represents a general guideline, which describes all the references, but also satisfies the demands of those who require more detailed information, for example: the customized Serpico y Laino dials, the chronographs, which were produced only in very small numbers, the characteristics of the Paul Newman models, watches with tropical dials, the calibers, the timepiece, which was called “Padellone,” the evolution and the range of dials of the Datejust and Day-Date, the Texano, the complications of the Sky-Dweller, the evolution of the diver’s models from the James Bond up to the James Cameron, the Oysterflex, the ceramic bezel inserts (including those of the modern Daytona), etc. The last chapters describe all the models, which were presented at Baselworld, like for example the Sea-Dweller, ref. 126600 with red writing, the new Sky-Dweller in stainless steel with a blue dial, the Yacht-Master with a sapphire and diamond set bezel and a lot more. The chapter “Shots from the Web” is absolutely new. It illustrates photos of Rolex watches from all over the world: models, which are rare or common, modern or vintage, in good or less good condition, are presented on different and original backgrounds.

The Taming of the Tights Book Review:

Teens who adore Louise Rennison's heroine Georgia Nicolson will love her cousin Tallulah Casey even more! Meg Cabot, New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries series, raved, "Tallulah is even funnier, warmer, and sweeter than her cousin Georgia Nicolson." In The Taming of the Tights, the third book in the (Mis)Adventures of Tallulah Casey series, Tallulah and her mates are back to finish their winter term at the Dother Hall performing arts program. And Tallulah is determined to finally show the world she's a true star of the stage! Out of the spotlight, Tallulah's life is filled with just as much drama. She's distracted by bad-boy Cain and trying her best to keep her accidental snog-session with him a secret. And although she is slowly beginning to think that maybe he's not so bad after all, she also continues to wonder about unavailable Charlie and dreamy Alex. Who would make the perfect leading man?
