Summary

“Organizes the city in an array of beautiful and cohesive shades . . . One of the best books about New York City by way of vibrant and striking images.” —New York Simply   This photographic portrait of New York captures the city as never before, in a vibrant visual tour, color by color. From Staten Island Ferry orange to taxicab yellow, photographer and writer Nichole Robertson brings New York’s quintessential shades into focus, seeking out the city’s hiding-in-plain-sight treasures: bananas sold streetside for a dollar, bright red “no parking” signs, stacks of delicious golden-brown pretzels, gleaming Art Deco gold archways. Arranged by color, these striking views portray the spirit of the city across every borough. A unique love letter to the iconic metropolis, this celebration of the city will charm locals as well as everyone who loves—or dreams of—visiting the Big Apple.  Praise for Nichole Robertson’s Paris in Love   “A beautiful ode that will leave you pining for Paris.” —Lindsey Tramuta, author of The New Paris   “That magic feeling you get when you are falling in love with a person or place—in this case Paris!—is encapsulated in this stunning gem of a book.” —Samantha Hahn, author of Well-Read Women   “We’re smitten by Nichole Robertson’s Paris in Love, which celebrates all things Parisian—especially crimson things, from raspberry tarts to scarlet mopeds, rosy begonias and glossy, berry-hued cafe chairs—in glorious photographs.” —San Jose Mercury News

    “Meticulously researched and beautifully illustrated . . . indispensable to anyone interested in the era.” —Tasha Alexander, New York Times–bestselling author of the Lady Emily series What did a Victorian lady wear for a walk in the park? How did she style her hair for an evening at the theater? And what products might she have used to soothe a sunburn or treat an unsightly blemish? USA Today-bestselling author Mimi Matthews answers these questions and more as she takes readers on a decade-by-decade journey through Victorian fashion and beauty history.  Women’s clothing changed dramatically during the course of the Victorian era. Necklines rose, waistlines dropped, and Gothic severity gave way to flounces and frills. Sleeves ballooned up and skirts billowed out. The crinoline morphed into the bustle and steam-molded corsets cinched women’s waists ever tighter. As fashion evolved, so too did trends in ladies’ hair care and cosmetics. An era which began by prizing natural, barefaced beauty ended with women purchasing lip and cheek rouge, false hairpieces and pomades, and fashionable perfumes.  Using research from nineteenth-century beauty books, fashion magazines, and lady’s journals, the author of the Parish Orphans of Devon series brings Victorian fashion into modern day focus—and offers a glimpse of the social issues that influenced women’s clothing and the outrage that was a frequent response to those bold females who used fashion and beauty to assert their individuality and independence.   “An elegant resource that I will be reaching for again and again.”—Deanna Raybourn, New York Times-bestselling author of the Veronica Speedwell novels

    Acquired wisdom has always put Sgt. Pepper at the head of the class, but it was Revolver that truly signaled The Beatles' sea change from a functional band to a studio-based ensemble. These changes began before Rubber Soul but came to fruition on Revolver, which took an astonishing 300 hours to produce, far more than any rock record before it.The making of Revolver—hunkered down in Abbey Road with George Martin—is in itself a great Beatles story, but would be nothing if the results weren't so impactful. More than even Sgt. Pepper and Pet Sounds, Revolver fed directly into the rock 'n' roll zeitgeist, and its influence could be heard everywhere: from the psychedelic San Francisco sound (Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead); to the first wave of post-blues hard rock (Sabbath, Zeppelin); through movie soundtracks and pretty much everything that followed it—including every generation of guitar-based pop music and even heavy metal. More than any record before or after, Revolver was the game-changer, and this is, finally, the detailed telling of its storied recording and enormous impact. Winner of the 2013 ARSC Award for Best Research in Recorded Rock Music: Best History.

    "Sweet Dreams'' consists of 42 original poems with bedtime, sleep, and dreaming as their central themes.  The poems are traditional in form  and follow rhyme and meter, done in in the fashion of Robert Louis Stevenson’s century-old classic, A Child’s Garden of Verses.         Topics include moonlit nights, snowy days, dreams of dinosaurs in the bedroom, annoyance at a Key West rooster crowing all night, what it would be like to wake up as a worm, the oddness of a fever ailment, gazing at autumn leaves from a gently rocking hammock, the comforting protection of an unseen guardian angel, and fancies like "The Softest Bed'' in which a child envisions himself curling up, wrapping himself in his warm, bushy tail, and sleeping like a fox.         Started when Telander himself was sick in a bed many years ago and had begun writing the poems in his head, this  poetry collection spoken by the author is a work of caring for boys and girls who must make that ordinary yet complex and sometimes frightening transition from waking reality to the land of Nod.          Sweet Dreams will amuse, delight, intrigue, and above all soothe children of all ages before sleep.  It's soothing for adults, too, since all of us do, indeed, sleep.
