    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.

    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.

    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.

    This beautiful and practical guide to the art of whittling offers the perfect antidote to the stresses of modern life and a means of getting back to basics and creating unique items from scratch.

    The Art of Whittling also preaches the idea of Danish hygge – translating to coziness and being with friends and family in a warm atmosphere. Here, author Niklas Karlsson gives us an insight into why the Danes are considered the happiest people in the world – and how you can bring some hygge into your own lives.

    More than just a manual, this book offers a contemplative view on a skill that is more popular than ever.

    Aside from being world-famous artists, what's one thing Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol and Frida Kahlo had in common? They were crazy about cats. At one point, Andy Warhol had 25 cats living in his apartment; they were all named Sam. Controversial contemporary artist Ai Weiwei shares his Beijing studio with 45 cats, one of whom can open doors!

    Artists and Their Cats gathers photographs of fifty famous artists with their beloved feline friends and offers behind-the-scenes stories of their relationships. From Salvador Dali’s pet ocelot Babou to John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s menagerie of cats including Salt (who was black) and Pepper (who was white), this charming little book reveals many an endearing friendship—and reveals the personality traits often shared between the daringly creative souls among us and the animals best known for their independent spirits.

    Get the buzz on bees with up-close and personal, stunning photographs of more than a hundred species.

    If a bee flies near you or if it lands on your arm, you might want to run away as fast as you can. Or maybe you freeze and hope the bee moves on quickly. No matter your strategy, one thing is certain: you're probably not appreciating the bee's fascinating beauty.

    But you're missing out! Bees are stunning to observe up close. Aliens or robots might come to mind when you gaze into a blue face with two giant, shiny black eyes. (That's right, bees can be blue, green, and red, too).

    In Bees, the photography of Sam Droege and the USGS presents more than 100 of the most eye-catching varieties of bees found throughout the world. While bee nerds may appreciate the common honey bee or the rare Andrena violae, others can simply enjoy the wide selection of different body shapes, head configurations, unique antennae, and the stories that accompany them.The next time a bee joins your picnic, you might find yourself staring!
