A bicycle in wartime. A chainstore armchair. A velvet jacket. A stone from a distant beach. Some of our strongest, longest lasting relationships are hidden in plain view-the relationships we have with the objects we own. What do our possessions do for us? And how do they do it? In The Promise of Things, Ruth Quibell explores how our possessions can speak to us and about us: who we think we are, what we long for, struggle against, or hope to remember. It an invitation to think deeply about how we use the things we own, and what makes them trivial or significant, burdensome or enlivening, throwaway or enduring. The Promise of Things is neither an apology for excess nor a manual for minimalism. Instead it seeks a more ambitious ideal: an intelligent life with things.

The Parisian woman is considered a female role model by definition: classical in taste, but independent and dynamic; elegant and sophisticated at times, feminine and seductive, but not vulgar; attentive to what she wears and taking care of her body, but without excessive vanity; and who has sophisticated and original but simple taste. Food lover and partygoer, she focuses on the quality of food rather than on her shape. Fond of natural beauty, and without plastic surgery, she doesn t try to hide the signs of aging, which she wears with pride. Sophie the Parisian doesn t take herself too seriously and uses a well-balanced mix of charm, great taste, and irony three typical traits of the modern Frenchwoman to cover topics ranging from fashion to the well-being of the body, from looks to health, from cooking to decoration: everything that makes the French joie de vivre a role-model lifestyle worldwide.

Tattoos, which were once an exclusively underground phenomenon, now have mass appeal. This evolution from sub-culture to mainstream has brought fresh ideas, tensions, and shifts with it, and traditionalists and innovators have staked out very different positions. Over the last few years, new influences from the realms of art, fashion, traditional tattoo art, and visual culture have given rise to a dynamic tattoo scene--a new underground. This cutting-edge tattoo culture is as innovative, diverse, inspiring, and controversial as the motifs it creates. One of the most striking facets of this new tattoo scene is its interaction with high fashion and art. The internationally successful artists Scott Campbell or Usugrow, to name just two high-profile examples, began their careers as tattoo artists. Forever breaks the mold of standard tattoo books and their typical displays of flesh. This publication is an in-depth investigation of current developments in contemporary tattoo culture. It introduces key innovators and presents a broad range of styles and approaches. Quality photos and insightful texts document the new self-image of a rapidly expanding and extremely creative scene.
This book is definitive proof that masculinity as we know it is a myth. A big, dumb, silly and quite poorly constructed myth! This book pokes light-hearted fun at the very notion of manhood, by offering a contemporary guide to masculinity. Thus: How to Be A Big Strong Man. Through its 150 tongue-firmly-in-cheek illustrations by queer artist Samuel Leighton-Dore, this book explores the many identities of a modern man. Manly man gets a pedicure, and manly man calls his grandmother for a nice long chat. Above all, a manly man can cry whenever he pleases and knows that "manliness" is an outdated construct... Duh! Just a few short years ago, anyone using the term "toxic masculinity" would likely have received blank stares or derision in return. But now, at this critical societal juncture, everyone is thinking and talking about how ideas of manhood (as prescribed from birth) affects the way men think and act. How to Be A Big Strong Man explores all these weighty ideas through its cute, sassy and satirical cartoons.
