If you stand still for long enough, the past catches up with you… Leaving behind the fragments of her old life, Marcia Reed-Wilton crosses the world to return to her dilapidated childhood home and dig up the weeds of the past. Next door, Mrs Everglade struggles to maintain her independence in spite of her increasing frailty.

A few twists of fate and a buried secret leave these individuals deeply and unexpectedly connected. The Seekers' Garden is a lush and captivating exploration of loss, growth and spirituality, revealing the way connections form in unlikely places.

A sound broke through the usual calm—the same cracking sound I had heard while I was awake!  The fragments Awa Bryant trapped just after she learned she was a long-awaited-for Dreamweaver are terrifyingly close to breaking free – so close that even in the waking world she can hear their efforts to crack their giant glass dome prison. Veila the Dreamcharmer is training her to use her powers, but Awa is impatient, distracted and still struggling with anxiety in her waking life. Yet, the threat grows stronger. She learns from Veila and the Priestess Tree that she must find the mysterious Dreamrealm labyrinth in order to master her powers and learn to alchemise the fragments before they can do more harm.   Even with the training and the guidance she’s received, can she succeed in her quest and defeat them before the marvellous Dreamrealm is destroyed?

She is a Dreamweaver, one who walks between worlds: that of waking life and the Dreamrealm.

MY LIFE ON THE ROAD THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLING HILARIOUS NEW BOOK FROM THE NATION'S FAVOURITE COMEDIAN, BILLY CONNOLLY Being a Rambling Man was what I always wanted to be, to live the way I damn well pleased. I've met the weirdest and most wonderful people who walk the Earth, seen the most bizarre and the most fantastic sights - and I've rarely come across something I couldn't get a laugh at. I don't think I've ever had a bad trip. Well, apart from in the 1970s, but that's a whole other story . . . When Billy set out from Glasgow as a young man he never looked back. He played his banjo on boats and trains, under trees, and on top of famous monuments. He danced naked in snow, wind and fire. He slept in bus stations, under bridges and on strangers' floors. He travelled by foot, bike, ship, plane, sleigh - even piggy-backed - to get to his next destination. Billy has wandered to every corner of the earth and believes that being a Rambling Man is about more than just travelling - it's a state of mind. Rambling Men and Women are free spirits who live on their wits, are interested in people and endlessly curious about the world. They love to play music, make art or tell stories along the way but, above all, they have a longing in their heart for the open road. In his joyful new book, Billy explores this philosophy and how it has shaped him, and he shares hilarious new stories from his lifetime on the road. From riding his trike down America's famous Route 66, building an igloo on an iceberg in the Arctic, playing elephant polo (badly) in Nepal and crashing his motorbike (more than once), to eating witchetty grubs in Australia, being serenaded by a penguin in New Zealand, and swapping secrets in a traditional Sweat Lodge ritual in Canada, Rambling Man is a truly global adventure with the greatest possible travel companion.

Now in Paperback.

First published in 1970 and re-issued by Grub Street for the first time in 1996, the new edition hit the bestseller lists and went on to sell over 20,000 copies and its reappearance was praised by contemporary cookery stars like Nigel Slater, Delia Smith and Simon Hopkinson. Also in that year Magaret Costa was honoured at the prestigious Glenfiddich Awards.
Margaret Costa's book was named as recently as 2010 as one of the Top 50 Cookbooks of All Time by Observer Food Monthly. The book has stood the test of time and indeed many of those writers who praise her also admit that they have taken their inspiration from her wonderful writing. The book is organised according to the seasons, and within each one there are also themed chapters such as Olives, Comforting Breakfasts or Proper Puddings. This is a modern classic which no cookery collection should be without.

Wherever you shop, be it online or in a brick-and-mortar store, the first thing you notice about a product is its packaging. The quality of the packaging has a significant influence on whether or not a customer decides to buy a product. In fact, packaging has become more important than ever in recent years: Unboxing videos are watched by millions of followers on social media platforms, college Packaging Design courses are full to bursting, more and more agencies are specializing in this area, and companies are investing ever greater sums of money in the outward appearance of their products. Packaging design has long since grown to become not just part of our everyday lives, but a powerful marketing tool as well. High-quality packaging can increase the value of an entire brand. With over 500 projects from more than 45 different countries, the sixth edition of TASCHEN's The Package Design Book celebrates the 14th anniversary of the Pentawards, one of the industry's most important international competitions. We will be casting our spotlight on all the winners from 2019 and 2020. With awards in six major categories - Beverages, Food, Body, Luxury, Other Markets, and Packaging Concepts - this spectacular and inspiring collection presents an array of unusual, intelligent and charming packaging concepts, demonstrating once again the importance of this design discipline.

Realism vs. Abstraction A colorful exploration of the life and work of Gerhard Richter An encounter with Gerhard Richter, the German artist who widened horizons in the relationship between painting and reality.
