THE ART OF WINNIE-THE-POOH: HOW E.H. SHEPARD ILLUSTRATED AN ICON
James Campbell
The enchanting story of how illustrator, E.H. Shepard, created the classic illustrations for some of the most beloved characters in English children’s literature – Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga, Roo, Christopher Robin, and more – and the remarkable partnership between the writer, A.A. Milne, and the illustrator that brought them to life. Told for the first time, this beautiful volume is illustrated with more than 125 full-colour images from the Pooh series, never-before-seen sketches, artwork, family photographs, and memorabilia.

 


FEAST: FOOD OF THE ISLAMIC WORLD
Anissa Helou
Delve into the enormous variety of dishes associated with Arab, Persian, Mughal (or South Asian), and North African cooking and discover favourites like biryani or Turkish kebabs along with lesser known specialties such as Zanzibari grilled fish in coconut sauce or Tunisian chickpea soup. The book is suffused with history, brought to life with stunning photographs, and inflected by Helou’s humour, charm, and sophistication.

 

 


BRUCE LEE: A LIFE
Matthew Polly
More than forty years after Bruce Lee’s sudden death at age 32, journalist and author Matthew Polly has written the definitive account of Lee’s life. It’s also one of the only accounts; incredibly, there has never been an authoritative biography of Lee. Following a decade of research that included conducting more than one hundred interviews with Lee’s family, friends, business associates and even the mistress in whose bed Lee died, Polly has constructed a complex, humane portrait of the icon.

 

 

 


CALYPSO
David Sedaris
Journey with Sedaris as he observes middle age and mortality. The stories are funny, it’s a book that can make you laugh til you snort, and the writing is sharp. Much of the comedy here is born out of that vertiginous moment when your own body betrays you and you realise that the story of your life is made up of more past than future. This is beach reading for people who detest beaches, required reading for those who loathe small talk and love a good tumour joke.

 

 

 


MAGNOLIA TABLE
Joanna Gaines
Magnolia Table is infused with Joanna Gaines’ warmth and passion for all things family, prepared and served straight from the heart of her home, with recipes inspired by dozens of Gaines family favourites and classic comfort selections from the couple’s new Waco restaurant, Magnolia Table, which opened early 2018. The 125 classic recipes presents a modern selection of American classics and family recipes, including Chicken Pot Pie, Chocolate Chip Cookies and the all-American classis, Mac and Cheese.
