• All the Aldas

    Kane, Daniel

    "This is a very special little artists book that Evil Twin's designer Stacy collaborated on with twins Daniel and Gillian Kane. Daniel was spiritually possessed by Alan Alda and wrote these poems to exorcise the presence. Gillian created a dozen delightful collages to illustrate the drama. The book has a letterpressed cover and a handsewn binding. Its printed enrtirely in color on gorgeous rough recycled paper and all the pages fold out. Its like an Alan Alda pop-up book."--ZAPP zine catalog.

    Knowledge Within

    "Knowledge Within: Treasures of the Northwest Coast looks into seventeen of the numerous sites in the Pacific Northwest region with major collections of Northwest Coast Indigenous material culture, bringing attention to a wide range of approaches to caring for and exhibiting such treasures. Each chapter is written by one or more people who work or worked in the organization they write about.

    Picasso

    Published for the most ambitious exhibition ever staged by the Fondation Beyeler, this book is devoted to the paintings and sculptures of the young Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) from the so-called Blue and Rose periods, between 1901 and 1906. The masterpieces of these crucial years, every one of them a milestone on Picasso's path to preeminence as the 20th century's most famous artist, are presented together, in an unparalleled concentration and quality. Picasso's pictures from this phase are some of the finest and most emotionally compelling examples of modern painting, and are counted among the most valuable works in the entire...

    The Car

    Appleyard, Bryan

    "The car that we know - petrol or diesel-driven and operated by a human - will soon be replaced by electric cars which, in turn, will become self-driving. The reign of the car, which began in the late nineteenth century, will have lasted at most 150 years. More than any other technology - more than television, mobile phones, more even than the internet - cars have transformed our culture. On the streets we notice people talking on their phones, but custom and habit have blinded us to the more astounding daily spectacle: the sound and smell of billions of tons...

  • Brave Boundaries

    Brave Boundaries

    Shillcutt, Sasha

    A guide for women on how to set strong, workable boundaries to safeguard their health, happiness, and wellbeing. Women are taught that when someone asks you for help, you say yes. Women are supposed to agree to take on whatever is asked of them, regardless of how busy they are. No matter how much a woman deeply desires to say no, the societal expectation is that women are helpers--taught to fix problems, show up at all times, and not let people down. Rather than say no, they often become avoiders and lose opportunities for personal growth. This leads to feelings...

  • Coffee With Hitler

    Coffee With Hitler

    Spicer, Charles

    Coffee with Hitler tells the astounding story of how a handful of amateur British intelligence agents wined, dined, and befriended the leading National Socialists between the wars. With support from royalty, aristocracy, politicians, and businessmen, they hoped to use the recently founded Anglo-German Fellowship as a vehicle to civilize and enlighten the Nazis. At the heart of the story are a pacifist Welsh historian, a World War I flying ace, and a butterfly-collecting businessman, who together offered the British government better intelligence on the horrifying rise of the Nazis than any other agents. Though they were only minor players in...

    The Interpreter's Daughter

    Lim, Teresa

    "A beautiful, sweeping, multigenerational narrative that spans from nineteenth century south China to modern day Singapore. I would learn that when families tell stories, what they leave out re-defines what they keep in. With my family, these were not secrets intentionally withheld. Just truths too painful to confront. In the last years of her life, Teresa Lim's mother, Violet Chang, had copies of a cherished family photograph made for those in the portrait who were still alive. The photo is mounted on cream card with the name of the studio stamped at the bottom in Chinese characters. The place and...
