Modern-day passion, tangible tradition, and striking creativity: trace how tattooing continues to evolve in the follow up to Forever. From the fluidity of watercolor to the meticulous nature of dotwork to the stunning detail of realism, the various styles of tattooing allow creativity to flourish. And whether inked in a clandestine spot or showcased visibly, every piece has its story. In Ukraine and Turkey, tattoos are political statements. Today, celebrated artists travel the world, organizing appointments exclusively via social media. Tattooing can be a way of life. Following the success of Forever: The New Tattoo, this volume further tracks the scene’s inventiveness and originality as tattoos emerge from subculture obscurity. Just as the needle infuses the skin with ink, the artists profiled here infuse life into current tattoo culture. Forever Now explores their unique stories and iconic work whilst creating a comprehensive narrative of this dynamic and enduring scene.

This Monocle book tells us how to turn a house into a home. Both a practical guide and a great source of inspiration, The Monocle Guide to Cosy Homes presents the interiors, furniture, and locations you need to know about along with portraits of the people who can make it happen. The Monocle Guide to Cosy Homes celebrates the durable and the meaningful through a collection of homes that tell a story. Most architecture and interior books show houses polished to perfection, manicured to the extent that it is hard to imagine anybody actually lives there: they seem to miss the point that homes are meant to be inhabited. They should be able to take scuffs and knocks and to be part of a community, whether in a Chicago skyscraper or on Australia’s sunshine coast.

From early hot rods and lowriders to modern tuning: this book presents a huge variety of unique cars from around the world. Automobiles have been tuned, restored, and rebuilt for years, but -whether made for leisurely cruising or peak performance - today's custom machines are more interesting than ever before. After exploring custom motorcycles in The Ride and The Ride 2nd Gear, it's high time to focus on the four-wheeled scene. The Drive showcases the diversity and reach of this custom movement. Each car is utterly unique; each builder a true personality. Passion and craft meet in their workshops in North America, Europe, and Asia. The resulting vehicles -and this book - are for anyone for whom a car is so much more than just a way to get around.
