"In this book, many of the depictions of what a girl gang is are not the most admirable. They are often belligerent, rude, violent, and lewd. But it sure does make for great art and entertainment.

With posters, logos, fan art, pinups, and more, Roller Derby / Girl Gang serves as a scrapbook of rough-and-tumble, fun-loving girls banding together to take on the world. Includes a playlist of favorite bad-girl anthems curated by the artists, lists of their all-time favorite girl gangs, and a foreword by Samara Pepperell, a.k.a. Lady Trample.

This vivid art book spotlights 50 artists of the Newbrow art, pop surrealism movement with over 180 striking color photos of their work. Artists from across the US, Denmark, Germany, and Australia are featured. The images themselves are filled with powerful social commentary, startling imagery, and sharp humor. The work ranges from that of street artists who trace back to the 1980s hip hop culture, using tools such as stenciling, wheat pasting, spray paint, and guerilla art installations, to illustrative artists who trace their backgrounds to graphic design and illustration. For those unfamiliar with Newbrow art, the author describes it as, “…a raw unapologetic form of expression that represents today’s current culture.” The artists presented are arranged alphabetically in the book, with text providing information about each artist’s life, inspiration, influences, and style. Contact information for each artist is also provided.

The Polizei Division first took shape in 1939, drawing manpower from the civilian police. In February 1942, the unit was transferred to the Waffen-SS and redesignated SS-Polizei-Division(4.SS). The former policemen appeared on the Western Front in 1940, before being shipped to the Leningrad sector in 1941. Polizei remained on the Eastern Front for the duration of the war, including deployments in Greece, the Banat (Romania), Hungary, and Pomerania, before finally surrendering just northwest of Berlin. The subject is examined through many personal recollections, hundreds of photos and maps from private collections, and period documents, including extracts from official bulletins and the division's war diary. A brief history of the Polizei II division is included as an appendix.

Shadows are said to be part of unlit corners of a space where creatures lurk and mystery dwells. They may also manifest on a personal or even global level to convey demons, fear, or anxieties. In a broader sense, shadows signify unresolved trauma and bring it to the forefront of our consciousness as aspects of ourselves that we can finally acknowledge -- the skeletons, mummies, spiders, bats, crows, and ghosts we hide. This Tarot deck and accompanying guidebook provide you with the vital creative tools you need to access your shadows and reveal hidden truths. Alongside traditional Tarot symbolism and meanings, shadow aspects of our archetypal personalities are portrayed as 78 playful and quirky ink-and-watercolour creature cards that offer insight and guidance into our deepest selves. The book consists of a detailed introduction to shadows and shadow work, card meanings, reflection questions, and easy-to-follow spreads to help you discover, contemplate, and integrate previously unacknowledged aspects of your life and personality. For beginners as well as seasoned readers and shadow workers, discover imaginative solutions to everyday challenges as well as complex or concealed conditions. Is it time for you to stop hiding from your shadows?

The Lockheed C-141 Starlifter was a new-build design by Lockheed and proved adaptable to many roles, from carrying outsized cargo to dropping paratroops. The C-141 was used in difficult environmental conditions, such as the heat and extreme humidity of Vietnam, the deserts of the Middle East, and the frozen ice pack of Antarctica. Modification programs enabled the C-141 to make full use of its capabilities, by adding in-flight refueling plus extending the length of the fuselage. The plane was a valued and appreciated USAF asset in numerous missions, from disaster aid and humanitarian relief to doing their part in Operation Desert Shield/Storm, and in the war on terror. The aircraft were eventually retired en masse in 2006 simply as a result of wear and tear. This book covers in detail all aspects such as interior/exterior configurations, cargo capabilities, missions, and modifications made throughout its service life.
