    An extraordinary book about equality founded on 200 original and diverse interviews with women from around the world

    You can’t empower women without listening to their stories – Gloria Steinem

    Famous and unknown, celebrated and marginalised, rich and poor, black and white, leaders, victims, survivors, heroes, saints and sinners. Women who will educate and inspire us, teach us empathy, and bring positive change in a time when so many women and girls are still fighting for basic freedom and equality.

    Founded on original interviews and accompanying photographic portraits, this landmark book is the realisation of an epic global journey to find two hundred women with diverse backgrounds, and ask them what really matters to them.

    All two hundred women were photographed against the same background and asked the same five questions. Their answers reveal truth, wisdom, and inspiring stories of success and courage, love and pain, redemption and generosity. From well-known activists, artists and innovators to everyday women whose lives are no less exceptional, each woman shares her unique replies to questions that reveal a human being's deepest motivation, happiness, sadness and hope.

    Each interview is accompanied by a photographic portrait from award-winning photographer Kieran E. Scott, resulting in a volume that is complelling in both world and image - and global in its scope and resonance. With responses that range from uplifting to heartbreaking, these women offer gifts of empowerment and strenth, inviting us to bring positive change at a time when so many people are fighting for basic feedom and equality. It's a book that confirms what we already know - there are no ordinary women.

    A percentage of proceeds will be distributed to organisations primarily devoted to protecting and advancing the rights of women.

    A full colour hardback A5 size desk diary with a week to a view, with a poem or illustration every week. Illustrated throughout with vintage and contemporary book jackets the diary has a sturdy cover and an elastic closure.

    The Faber poetry list, originally founded in the 1920s, is celebrating its 90th year in 2019. For nearly forty years the list was shaped by the taste of T.S. Eliot, who was its guiding light. Since the sixties, each passing decade has seen the list grow with the addition of poets who were arguably the finest of their generation. More recently the creation of the Poet to Poet series has further broadened the scope of Faber poetry by including the work of great poets from the past, selected and introduced by the contemporary poets they have inspired.

    The universe is made of stories, not of atoms.
    —Muriel Rukeyser

    A pleasurable entertainment for some, the conduit of knowledge and self-actualization for others, reading has long been a force that empowers women to engage their dreams. Here we celebrate the reading woman—her contentment, absorption, and quiet reveries—as well as the fondness artists have demonstrated for depicting a woman lost in thought. In this calendar are twelve images of women with their books, their letters, and their journals. Accompanying each image is an illuminating or amusing quotation on the subject of readers and reading. It’s a combination sure to spark your imagination in 2019.

    A breakfast-room adjoined the drawing-room, I slipped in there. It contained a bookcase: I soon possessed myself of a volume, taking care that it should be one stored with pictures. I mounted into the window-seat: gathering up my feet, I sat cross-legged, like a Turk; and, having drawn the red moreen curtain nearly close, I was shrined in double retirement.
    —Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

    A book can stop time, transcend circumstances, and take the reader away from the everyday. And the reading woman herself is a complex story that has fascinated generations of artists.

    This calendar presents twenty exquisite paintings that span six centuries and three continents. Artists include well-known masters such as Degas and Cassatt, along with sometimes anonymous painters from centuries past. Well-chosen words on the pleasures of reading, from historic and contemporary female writers and readers alike, accompany each image.

    Title: AN ATLAS OF COUNTRIES THAT DONT EXIST
    Author: MIDDLETON NICK
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK

    Acclaimed travel writer and Oxford geography don Nick Middleton takes us on a magical tour of countries that, lacking diplomatic recognition or UN membership, inhabit a world of shifting borders, visionary leaders and forgotten peoples.

    Most of us think we know what a country is, but in truth the concept is rather slippery. From Catalonia to the Crimea, and from Africa's last colony to the European republic that enjoyed just a solitary day of independence, the places in this book may lie on the margins of legitimacy, but all can be visited in the real world.

    Beautifully illustrated by fifty regional maps, each shadowy country is literally cut out of the page of this book. Alongside stories, facts and figures, this Atlas brings to life a dreamlike world of nations that exist only in the minds of the people who live there.
