There's much more to surfing than palm trees and beach boy cliches. People surf not only in Hawaii, but also in Norway, South Korea, and India. Surf Odyssey is a book about the world of surfing today and those that live in it. This community is made up of the surfers themselves as well as surf photographers and board builders who are also spreading its distinctive spirit into other creative fields. Comparable to the new outdoor movement, today's surfing is about an attitude toward life, a lust for adventure, and a love of nature that one can only find far away from established spots. Surf Odyssey presents this scene's places, people, stories, and brands. Its stunning photography is sure to inspire many further surfing exploits.

Niçoise cuisine is the food of the Mediterranean. It is not only a delight to the palate, but is known to have many health benefits. Its recipes are in tune with the natural cycle of the year using in-season fruits, herbs and vegetables, as well as plenty of fish. But the majority of the recipes are merely guides – unless you are baking – offering a relaxed flexibility with ingredients and seasonings suited to cooks of all levels of experience. This, Jacques Médecin’s legendary book, first published in 1972 and now reissued for the first time in hardback offers an infectiously enthusiastic guide to the cookery of his city.

Fifteen years since it was originally published, Grub Street is proud to present the re-issue of Poles in Defence of Britain. To the Polish volunteers who were to fly and fight so brilliantly and tenaciously throughout the Battle of Britain, the United Kingdom was known as ‘Last Hope Island’. Many lost their lives, such as Antoni Ostowicz, many achieved glory and became aces – such as Glowacki, Skalski and Witorzenc. The RAF came to depend on these men, with over 100 Polish pilots supporting almost thirty fighter squadrons, most especially 302, 303 and 307 (night fighter). ‘An exhaustive record of the heroic actions of the Polish pilots who escaped to Britain and helped ensure its survival.’ Pennant ‘The result of many years of research, sharp and comprehensive, the text is supported by an excellent selection of rare photos.’ Air Mail

No longer confined to a flat medium, illustration has been liberated to new heights of fancy limited solely by the imaginations of today’s leading artists. Some employ paper cutting to create multilayered worlds that you look into rather than upon. Others work with fabric or thread, embroidering colorful conceptual masterpieces that have the ability to shock or surprise. Still others make use of mixed media, not wishing to be limited by choice of material when crafting their individual visions. Whether two or three dimensional, each of the artworks featured reflect an entirely unique voice, which expands upon the very definition of illustration. Artists include Gregory Euclide, Frank Plant, Chris Maynard, Christine Kim, Bovey Lee, and Irma Gruenholz.

Designers often look to earlier decades or generations for inspiration, borrowing motifs and palettes that are recognizable through their ability to elicit nostalgia. From the ever-popular 50s and 60s to the growing interest in the early years of the 20th century, this rejuvenated aesthetic can influence everything from fashion and hair (or beard styles) to housewares and furniture. New Retro focuses specifically on graphic designers that evoke bygone eras with their creative work. The first section showcases logo design and examines the ways in which designers are able to incorporate vintage typefaces and imagery to create new and innovative brand identities and logotypes. The second section presents highly skillful graphic output, from poster and print design to fashion, product, packaging design and more, that nods back while leaning forward.
