Discover lagom - the Swedish idea of balance, harmony, beauty and sufficency. Our love affair with all things Scandinavian shows no signs of letting up. Having embraced the Danish concept of hygge, we're now looking to Sweden and one of their essential philosophies, lagom. It's best described as 'not too much, not too little; just the right amount', which, in practice, is balance - and isn't that what we're all looking for? In this delightful little pocket book, Elisabeth Carlsson, a Swede who has been living in the UK for many years, lets us in on the secrets of the enviable Swedish lifestyle and shows us how we can all be a little more lagom. She explains what lagom means to the Swedish and then explores how it can relate to all areas of our life: from our separation of work and home through managing our time, to how we eat, never depriving ourselves but not overindulging and avoiding waste; from discovering what makes a home more lagom in style and function, to how we sustainably take care of that home; from appreciating and looking after our body with moderate exercise and care, to our approach to life as a whole, and realising that what's good for the world can also be good for us, too. Filled with advice and ideas, this thoughtful guide provides the key to a lagom way of living - healthy, harmonious and happy.

Not every PhD becomes a professor. Some never want to, but others discover-too late and ill-prepared to look elsewhere-that there's precious little room in today's ivory tower, and what's there might not be a good fit. For those leaving academia, or wanting out, or finding themselves adrift, this book offers hope, advice, and a bracing look at how others facing the same quandary have made careers outside of the academy work. All of the authors in this volume, as well as the editors, have built successful careers beyond the groves of academia-as freelance editors and writers, consultants and lecturers, librarians, realtors, and entrepreneurs-and each has a compelling story to tell. Their accounts afford readers a firsthand view of what it takes to transition from professor to professional. They also give plenty of practical advice, along with hard-won insights into what making a move beyond the academy might entail-emotionally, intellectually, and, not least, financially. Imparting what they wish they'd known during their PhDs, these writers aim to spare those who follow in their uncertain footsteps. Together their essays point the way out of the "tenure track or bust" mindset and toward a world of different but no less rewarding possibilities.
Valentino: Master of Couture is an exhibition at the Somerset House co-organized by Valentino himself, who selected over 130 dresses for the exhibition. The book focues as much on Valentino and his glamorous lifestyle as it does on his legendary dressmaking techniques and atelier. (The overwhelming success of Matt Tyrnauer's film Valentino: The Last Emperor attests to the public's hunger for "behind the scenes" glimpses of Valentino's life). The designers had unprecedented access to Valentino's personal archive, and the selected visual material includes personal photographs of and by Valentino and his close circle (often with glamorous women such as Jackie O., Elizabeth Taylor, Lee Radziwill, and the like) in his art-filled homes and at social events, giving the book the feel of a personal album and the viewer access to a unique life. The catalog also includes two photographic portfolios by Deborah Turbeville and Cathleen Naundorf, showing Valentino at work. A number of dresses in the exhibition sprinkled throughout the catalog rounds out this intimate look at the life of a design legend.
From the design intelligence of Pippa Paton, author of the successful Twenty-first Century Cotswolds, comes a second celebration of traditional Cotswolds buildings.
