Envision the city as an infinite playground. Created in collaboration with Red Bull, Urban Playgrounds explores some of the world's most thrilling places for urban sports. From Venice, Barcelona, and Los Angeles, to Brasilia, Istanbul, Cairo, Lagos, or Jarkarta, this book reveals an exhilarating marriage between space and sports in global cities. Born from a need to challenge boundaries and reclaim the right to the city, from a desire for self-expression and entertainment, urban sports reimagine the city as a playground. Be it freestyling on a skateboard, riding a BMX, or stretching the human body in parkour, urban athletes demonstrate the possibilities.

The first cookbook authored by Our Food Stories celebrates nature in seasonal, gluten-free recipes and gorgeous table settings. Good food speaks to all of our senses, and makes us feel good too. Laura and Nora from Our Food Stories have made it their mission to attain these delights through gluten-free, vegetarian, and healthy food. Trained stylists as well as excellent cooks, for them where we eat matters as much as what. So when Laura and Nora lay out tables, the centerpiece and the dishes come together to reconnect us with nature. Full of delicious recipes that highlight seasonal ingredients, A Year With Our Food Stories is above all a cookbook. But it's more: visuals of kitchens, of tables set up by a cozy fire, of picnic blankets in flowery meadows provide inspiration on how to reflect the flavors of the seasons in the setting. This is a book for food lovers with an appreciation of taste in all its forms.
