Ten years ago, the designer Hella Jongerius began a research project for the Swiss furniture company Vitra to study the properties and possibilities of colours, textures, finishes and materials. This long-term project has resulted in the Vitra Colour & Material Library, which is dedicated to the establishment and further development of an intelligent system of colours, materials and textiles that make it easy to create inspiring environments in offices, homes and public spaces. In the book I Don't Have a Favourite Colour, Hella Jongerius describes her method of research and the application of its results to the Vitra product portfolio.

Rosy-cheeked and wrapped in blue, with a flower in her hair, Death rides a pink bike. Death, a green-eyed little girl in this pastel world, visits small animals with soft fur and big animals with sharp teeth. She lingers with a kindly grandmother as they knit one last scarf together. She wanders through surroundings of gentle beauty and she tells us who she is. For parents of children facing the loss of a family member, a friend, or a pet, this book finds words to express what is often so difficult to explain. It ends with such a feeling of uplift and acceptance that readers of any age will turn the last page with a smile and a tear. Author Elisabeth Helland Larsen and illustrator Marine Schneider weave a tapestry out of direct, poetic words and hand-drawn pictures to give voice to emotions that are moving, real, and most of all, honest.

There’s a baby on its way… help! Well, how hard can it be really? We’ve all seen it done; most of us have even had parents ourselves. You’d think we’d know what to do by now, wouldn’t you? But parenthood is surrounded by very important questions: How long before I can start drinking wine again? Should the father be there at the birth – especially if he can barely remember being there at the conception? Why do nappies cost so much? And the questions don’t stop, even when the kids are grown up: When are they going to give us our first grandchild? Why are they still borrowing money off us? And will they ever move out of our house? But luckily help is at hand, and Parenting for Beginners has all the witty advice you’ll need to start your new journey in style!

Following on from his bestselling title Abandoned America:The Age of Consequences Matthew Christopher brings Abandoned America: Dismantling The Dream. If the creation of a structure represents the values and ideals of a time, so too does its subsequent abandonment and eventual destruction. In "Abandoned America: Dismantling the Dream", internationally acclaimed photographer Matthew Christopher continues his tour of the quiet catastrophes dotting American cities, examining the losses and failures that led these ruins to become forsaken by communities that once celebrated them. From the heartbreaking story of a state school that would become home to one of the country's worst cases of fatal neglect and abuse to the shattered remains of what was once the largest mall in the United States, "Abandoned America: Dismantling the Dream" asks what leads us to leave places behind and what the consequences are of doing so. Exploring the remnants of two gorgeous theaters fighting for survival, the country's largest privately owned zoo, a a beachfront community left for dead when its bridge burned, a massive crumbling asylum, a derelict ocean liner larger than the Titanic, and more.
