play with your food. Welcome to a world where little people have big personalities. A world that's upside down and yet weirdly, wonderfully real. A world where Lilliputian thieves poach strawberry seeds. Where it takes a guy with a jackhammer to pop open pistachios. Where skaters fall into a crack in the crème brûlée, and teddy bear cookies congregate with evil intent. Marrying inspired photographs of real food and tiny people with equally inspired captions, photographer Christopher Boffoli creates a smart, funny, quirky vision of what it means to play with your food. Happiness, hope, adventure, pride, love, greed, menace, solitude—it's our world, seen through a singularly unique and funny lens, in more than 100 scenes from breakfast through dessert. By photographer Christopher Boffoli A quirky vision of what it means to play with your food Photographs combine real food and tiny people with clever, inspired captions Paperback 256 pages Made in USA
disappearing act. Struck by the extent of abandonment in the former Soviet Union and its satellite states in the former Eastern Bloc, photographer Rebecca Litchfield sensitively and beautifully records many abandoned locations within 13 countries which were once part of the Soviet Union or occupied. There, she explores forgotten towns, factories, prisons, schools, monuments, hospitals, theatres, military complexes, asylums and death camps. With the fall of a Communist empire, the former USSR is now home to derelict, uninhabited, broken shells of a forgotten time. The collapse of the Soviet Union left haunting memories of ordinary people who once lived and worked there. Rebecca's work shines a light on a society shrouded by the cold war, offering a touching document of the daily lives of the Soviet people. By photographer Rebecca Litchfield Photographs and essays explore how and why once thriving communities in the former Soviet Union became abandoned, whether by man-made catastrophe, natural disaster or the passage of time Features stunning imagery that reveals both beauty and meaning in the post-apocalyptic decay of forgotten places, such as factories, hospitals and schools Hardcover 264 pages Made in China

minimal to the max. Emerging in the 1960s, minimalism in architecture and interiors inspired a return to simple forms and colors, creating the most dramatic effect with the least amount of materials.

Contemporary Minimalist Spaces takes a completely fresh look at the state of the movement through spaces that provide both spiritual sanctuary and artistic respite. Not limited solely to residential settings, this book also examines hotels, restaurants, retails shops and offices that consciously exemplify the goals of minimalism while highlighting the incredible breadth of manifestations.

suit yourself. Sharp Suits examines the fascinating history of the evolution of the modern suit from the days of 19th-century bespoke to the mass industrialization of the early part of the 20th-century. We see how the uniform of the ruling classes became the utilitarian outfit of the worker. In a series of thematic chapters, the book also illustrates how the universal staple of a man's wardrobe can play many different roles and, chameleon-like, can mean different things in different situations. Retro or futuristic, subtle or outrageous, the suit is the ultimate flexible friend. Movie stars and rock stars, heroes and villains, philanthropists and gangsters—all these men and many, many more have dressed to impress in a matching jacket and trousers and have found that a suit very much suits them. Illustrated review examines the fascinating history of the suit from 1860–2013 Includes a study of the progression of suit style over the decades, including fabrics and cuts used By Eric Musgrave and Timothy Everest Hardcover 208 pages Made in USA
